Carlos Tevez's plea

Athletes are among the best-paid athletes globally, and so it wasn't surprising to hear the Argentinian calling on other football starts to forfeit their salaries and wages for the year to help fight the coronavirus pandemic. According to him, a football player can live comfortably for a year without being paid. His clarion call is noble, but not every professional player would heed it.

I agree that athletes are among the best-paid professionals, but forfeiting their salaries isn't something every player can/will support. Already, some players are forfeiting their wages and salaries in support of the non-playing staff in their respective clubs. Somehow each of us, irrespective of our financial statuses, can play a part in containing this pandemic. It is our collective effort that will count!

Tevez's plea is timely and accurate, but I doubt if other players will follow suit. Like @jack25 mentions, some players are already forfeiting a large percentage of their salaries and wages to support the non-playing staff. Rather than a collective effort, respective clubs or groups of people should devise ways of playing their part in curbing this menace.
