Cesc Fabregas to bankroll laid off AS Monaco stewards, medical and fitness staff amid COVID-19 crisis

RMC Sport report that Spanish central midfielder Cesc Fabregas has made a number of impressive and bold decisions to help his club AS Monaco get through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

He has agreed to take a 30% salary cut, adding to his earlier efforts from the start of this pandemic when Fabregas decided to pay for a hotel to house the elderly in. Furthermore, Fabregas has agreed to a 4 month deferral of all his salary, which will be a huge help to the Principality side, as Cesc is the club’s highest current earner. The World Cup winner even indicated that he is happy to wait until the end of his current contract, June 2022, to receive this 4 months worth of payment back.

He also has decided to pay the shortfall of all members of AS Monaco’s medical and fitness staff who have been furloughed, as well as the stewards that Monaco had to lay off.
