Weymouth manager Mark Molesley does not believe his Terras’ squad should see a cut in their wages amid the coronavirus crisis.

Weymouth’s management team have collectively declined pay until the future of the current National League season is defined.

But the Terras’ players will not yet follow suit with the National League South campaign suspended “indefinitely”.

Last weekend, Derby player-coach Wayne Rooney suggested footballers were in a “no-win” situation as the Premier League proposed a 30 per cent wage cut for players.

Rooney also branded the situation “a disgrace” but, with Weymouth’s players earning significantly less than top-level stars, wages will continue to be paid in full.

Asked whether his players should follow his backroom team’s example, Molesley told Echosport: “No – nor should they at the moment.

“The league hasn’t made any decision. Everyone’s waiting for clarity of what’s going to happen with the league situation going forward.”
