WEST BROM chief executive Mark Jenkins will take a 100 per cent pay cut during the coronavirus crisis.
The Baggies’ senior management team have also offered to take large reductions in their wages.
Coronavirus has shut football down and, with no date set for a return, Jenkins will not be paid at the Hawthorns.
He said: “It is only correct that for the duration of this lockdown I take a 100 per cent cut in my salary, and other members of the senior management team have also offered to take significant reductions in their remuneration.
“But everybody is fully aware these are very uncertain times in which we simply cannot forecast what the future holds.
“Until we regain a level of certainty, we cannot be sure if planned income will actually be received or if we will be forced to utilise cash the club already holds to refund existing commitments.
“What we do know for fact is that our operations are almost completely closed down and we are receiving virtually no income.
“Almost all of the club’s usual costs still need to be paid, the majority of which are wages, whether this be admin staff, maintenance teams, management or, of course, the first-team players.”
