    Not heard of any Prima Donna Premier league club doing this.

    As reported by BBC Sport, Leeds United’s players, coaching staff and senior management have volunteered to defer wages so that the non-paying staff can be paid.

    Lots of clubs, players and ex-players are doing good stuff. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has donated €100k to a fund fighting the virus; Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville have opened their hotels for free accommodation to NHS staff; Watford have offered their stadium to the NHS. I’ve seen other stuff too, but Leeds are not the only club stepping up to the plate.

    When I heard about Gary Neville giving over his hotel to NHS he went from a person of ridicule to hero status, totally unheard of a Leeds fan praising anyone or anything to do with Man utd

    In fairness he and the Class of 92 have made a lot of investment into Manchester, including building a permanent home for the United Supporters Club that also doubles as a drop in/community centre on non- match days.

    From my professional life I can assure you that many of the massive earning footballers do plenty of philanthropic activities and most don't shout about it on social media.

    There are also plenty that just piss it up the wall in their own little cosseted bubble.

    Not to trivialise his gesture but that would be like average Joe public contributing 50p

    Fair point but it’s still a lot of money.
    Positive. He’s donated €50k twice.
