Players and directors at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have agreed to take a temporary pay cuts.

Both German giants said the move was to help the other employees at the club financially during the coronavirus crisis.

Last week, Borussia Monchengladbach’s players were the first in the country to offer to forgo wages.

Bayern players will take a 20% pay cut, while Dortmund players will “waive part of their salaries”.

There has been no Bundesliga action since 8 March as the coronavirus outbreak hit sport across the world.

Last week, Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski and his wife Anna contributed 1m euros (£920,000) to fight the disease.

Team-mates Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich also set up a fund called “We Kick Corona” to combat the pandemic and contributed 1m euros between them.

On Wednesday, German authorities announced there had been 31,554 cases of coronavirus in the country and 149 deaths.
