All sporting events in Italy must be played behind closed doors until at least April 3 to help stem the spread of the disease, which has already killed 197 people in the country.

“In such a complicated moment for our nation, it’s only right that players take the initiative, do their part and send a strong signal to the fans too,” former Inter player and director Mazzola told Il Giornale.

“Too often have these lads been labelled superficial, mercenaries, mere professionals, but now they can prove that is not true by putting themselves at the service of their clubs and the greater good.

“In Serie A, these players earn millions, so just for one month they could dock their wages by five per cent to help their clubs cover the huge losses incurred during this period and also help donate money to Coronavirus research.”
