Patrice Motsepe confirmed that there will be no salary cuts at Mamelodi Sundowns whether there is football or not.
There hasn’t been football in South Africa since mid-March and some teams have struggled to cope financially.
However, Motsepe assured his employees, including those working behind the scenes at the club that they will receive their monthly salaries in full.
He said it is important that they continue paying the salaries to everybody who works for them as if there was no corona virus because it’s an obligation they have for them.
Two months ago, Motsepe, through his Foundation, pledged R1 billion towards fighting the coronavirus in South Africa.
Furthermore, Motsepe made it clear that as a businessman fighting unemployment, poverty and inequality among other things was part of his top priority list.
