Fritz Keller proposes salary caps for ‘credible’ football


According to foreign media, the head of the German Football Association (DFB) Fritz Keller has proposed a salary cap to help make the sport more sustainable following the coronavirus pandemic.

“There are absurd salaries and transfer fees that are no longer credible,” Keller, boss of the German Football Association (DFB), told reporters.

But DFB president Keller believes the global health crisis is a chance for football to adopt a salary cap system.

“We must bring professional football closer to the people again. We have to think about a salary cap,” he told the federation’s website.

“Commissions for player advisors and huge transfer sums are increasingly irritating society and alienate it from our beloved sport. The coronavirus crisis offers the opportunity to look ahead and to reposition football to preserve it for future generations.”
