The highest-paid staff at the Football Association will take wage cuts of up to 30%, including England manager Gareth Southgate, as the organisation tries to manage the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

FA chief executive Mark Bullingham outlined the cost-saving measures in a message to staff which was published on the governing body's website on Monday afternoon.

It was reported that Southgate would sacrifice £225,000 over the next three months under the plan.Bullingham proposed that staff earning more than £50,000 annually should take a cut of 7.5%.

The FA is also looking to utilise the Government's coronavirus job retention scheme to furlough staff, Bullingham said.

"We are proposing that all employees earning £50,000 or more per annum will take a temporary pay reduction of 7.5%.

"In the spirit of those on higher salaries taking the greater responsibility, the senior management team have agreed to cut their pay by 15% with the highest earners in the organisation agreeing to reduce their pay by up to 30%."
