Roma's first team squad have informed the club that they will go without salary for a period of four months in order to provide financial assistance to the COVID-19 crisis.

With the Serie A season on pause since the beginning of March, and with no date yet confirmed for a return, the players have announced that they will not receive any salary for the months March to June.

In a gesture to the club's non-playing staff, Roma's players also confirmed that they would provide funds to top up those utilising Italy's 'safety net' scheme to ensure that they are receiving their full salary.

Roma chief executive Guido Fienga said: "We always talk about unity at Roma and in volunteering to cut their salaries for the rest of the season, the players, the coach, and his staff, have all proved that we really are in this together.

“Edin Dzeko, all the players and Paulo Fonseca have demonstrated they understand what this club stands for and we also thank them all for their superb gesture towards the employees at this club.”

Other Serie A clubs including Juventus, Cagliari and Parma have also agreed to a wage cut but a blanket deal for all players in Serie A was rejected by the player's union.
