Until Friday, players were led by the PFA in discussions of potential reductions, which culminated on Thursday evening with a union statement effectively outlining that players were unwilling to make pay cuts.

The West Ham chief also slammed the PFA for their position in telling players to refuse a cut
“When you consider that the majority of the proceeds from the broadcast will pay the players’ wages, it is inconceivable that the PFA does not seem to understand this.
“They seem to suggest that the players who accept a pay cut mean that the money somehow ends up in the pockets of the owner, which is completely ridiculous.”
Brady further explained that the PFA’s responsibility extends beyond protecting the interests of football players.
Brady also revealed that the clubs are still not sure when the season can resume
“The PFA may believe that its responsibilities end with the players, but they don’t, they also owe a lot to the structure of professional football,” she added.
“No one wants to cut a salary with someone because no one wants to be in this position.”
Brady had previously sparked controversy as he suggested the Premier League season should be annulled due to uncertainty when to resume the season.
