Leeds United players have decided to defer their wages.
Some Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the players deciding to defer their wages.
As announced on Leeds’s official website today, the club’s players, coaching staff and senior management team have volunteered to take a wage deferral.
This is to ensure that non-football staff at the Championship club can be paid.
It is quite a generous gesture from the players, coaches and management team, and some Leeds fans have given their take on the announcement.
Below are some of the best comments:

Deferral is not a cut as many players and staff are doing elsewhere, but it’s better than nothing.— Jonty (@JontySolomons) March 26, 2020

Owner still acting like we are skint. Should cover it himself as he’s been skimping for 18 months— Hugh Jarce (@Hughjarce2014) March 26, 2020
It is hard times for a lot of clubs, as football is suspended at the moment due to the global health pandemic.
However, Leeds have to look forward, as there is nothing much they can do at the moment.
Leeds fans will hope that the season resumes soon, as the Whites are in a very good position in the Championship table.
The Whites are at the top of the league table at the moment, and with the players training hard and keeping fit in their respective homes, the Elland Road faithful will be optimistic that they will be ready when time comes.
