Gordon Taylor, the PFA Chief, called on the EFL to take action since a lot of Wanderer’s employees are still waiting for the wages and bonuses from last month.
The boss of the players union said that he was told the pending wages would be paid by the end of this week, but this has not yet happened. The Wanderers are insisting that players like Jay Spearing, Mark Davies, Lawrie Wilson, and Dean Moxey must be paid at the earliest. Just imagine how you would feel if you went into a casino and won a jackpot but were told that you will have to wait for an indefinite period before the winnings were given to you. Would you agree to that? Of course you wouldn’t. So why should these footballers be okay with it?
The chairman also wants to restructure the clubs bonus system in order to make sure it doesn’t dig as deeply into their cash-flow. Maybe the players could consider going online and checking out the various casino providers to earn some extra money in the meantime?
Taylor, an ex-Wanderers player, said that he was concerned while issuing a statement to a newspaper recently. He said that the matter was being taken quite seriously since the players who were released weren’t being paid.
Ken Anderson had earlier explained why he wasn’t ready to put in the £500,000 to pay the wages for June as well as the bonuses which were promised to the players. Without their wages, players will obviously not be able to go down to their local casinos and have some fun. These are the only couple of months they get to relax before the football season starts. This is the only time they will be able to gamble at casinos. But, unfortunately, they can’t.
He also added that since he funded the club alone with a lot of money during the discussion period, he will continue to do so for now hoping that an agreement can be reached between both parties soon.
