Premier League leaders Liverpool have placed their non-playing staff on furlough while football remains suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis.
They've made the announcement as the players representative body, the PFA, is meeting with the Premier League to discussed a proposed 30% wage cut for players.
"The club have confirmed those staff will be paid 100 per cent of their salaries to ensure no member of staff is financially disadvantaged." Liverpool FC said in a statement this afternoon.
"Last month the club also confirmed that it would pay its matchday and non-matchday staff while the Premier League is suspended.
"Even prior to the decision on staff furloughing, there was a collective commitment at senior levels of the club - on and off the pitch - with everyone working towards a solution that secures jobs for employees of the club during this unprecedented crisis.
"There is ongoing active engagement about the topic of salary deductions during the period matches are not being played to schedule. These discussions are complex and as a result the process is ongoing."
The club have also launched a foodbank appeal while revealing their first-team squad has also made a "significant donation" to Saint Andrews foodbank, which is located in north Liverpool.
