Wayne Rooney cuts off his wage to help Derby County’s financial crisis

Wayne Rooney will defer a portion of his £90,000-a-week wage to help Derby County through their financial crisis.

Wayne Rooney was appointed as the manager of Derby County a few days ago. He signed a two and a half years contract on similar terms to his playing deal with an additional 12 months extension.

Derby County has faced a lot of problems financially since the last season. COVID-19 pandemic has made it worse. Wayne Rooney was an instrumental part when all the members of the Derby County squad had accepted wage deferrals last season. That time he did it as a player. This is he did the same thing as a manager.

Mel Morris, the Championship club owner, is now reluctant to inject more funds, leading to the potentially damaging situation whereby many of the club’s players were not paid in full last month. The club has assured that the players will get the remaining wages of December within next Monday. The club also assured that the players would get the wages of January in time.
