Castilla lowers salary

first_imgReal Madrid Castilla will also be affected by the coronavirus crisis. As AS has been able to know, the players of the white subsidiary will see their wages reduced by between 10% and 20%, depending on whether the competition resumes. If the season ends, the reduction will be only 10%, while if no game is played again, their wages will be reduced by 20%.It is not an ERTE, but an agreement between the club and the footballers. The reduction will occur from the gross total of the season for each footballer. Castilla’s salary cost is approximately 6.8 million euros gross per season. That is, this measure will mean for Madrid 680,000 euros in savings if the competition resumes and 1.36 million if no more is played. During this week the footballers of the team led by Raúl thought that the salary reduction measure that will be carried out in the first team would not affect them. Nevertheless, During the morning of this Wednesday there was a conversation between Ramón Martínez, director of the Real Madrid youth team, and Álvaro Fidalgo, captain of Castilla. In it the white leader has communicated the decision to lower their salary and the captain has been in charge of communicating it to the rest of the staff.This decision was quite surprising among the subsidiary’s players, since they thought that it would not affect them. Despite this, they understand the difficult situation the country is going through and the feeling was one of surprise rather than anger. Although they compete in Segunda B, in Castilla all the players have professional salaries.Castilla are currently seventh in Group I of Segunda B. They are five points from the positions that give access to the playoff promotion to Segunda. The club had high hopes that the subsidiary would enter that playoff after Reinier and Marc Gual’s reinforcements, both arrived in the past winter market. This is Raúl’s first season as a branch coach, after he was named last summer.last_img
