DON’T CUT SALARIES TOO DEEP
THE squad budgeting system takes on extra meaning as each season passes. This year’s percentage reduction in squad budgets against turnover gives managers yet more to think about.
What will happen for sure is that more young players will be given their chance. What will also happen is that lads will be forced to leave the game as the salaries begin to tighten lower down the leagues.
Family men will no longer be able to sustain themselves on the reduced monies. We must be careful not to push so far with the salary percentages that we find greatly talented players being forced out.
