Former AC Milan striker Paolo di Canio has encouraged Inter Milan’s players to accept pay-cuts.
Reports suggest Inter’s title winning squad is being urged to surrender two months’ wages to help the club save €35m.
“I would surely take a pay cut if the club is struggling, it’s fair to help,” Di Canio told Sky Italia.
“Footballers are privileged and earn a lot of money. It is a pity to take a pay cut when you win the title, but I would accept it.
“Common sense is needed.”
