Republic manager Giovanni Trapattoni accepts pay cut


Republic of Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni is among FAI staff hit by a wage cut

Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni and members of his backroom team have agreed to take a pay cut from the Football Association of Ireland.

The drop is believed to be "in excess of 5%", amounting to around 100,000 euros per year for the Italian.

Trapattoni spoke with FAI general secretary John Delaney in Milan last month and an agreement was reached.

The reduction will also apply to coaching staff Marco Tardelli, Fausto Rossi, Mick Martin and Don Givens.

In total, the saving should amount to 160,000 euros.

It is estimated that a third of that saving would accrue to businessman Denis O'Brien who currently pays half of the management team's salaries.

The FAI has never disclosed Trapattoni's salary but he is understood to be paid 1.8m euros a year under a contract which runs to the end of the European Championship qualifying campaign.

The Association is believed to be more than 50m euros in debt.
