Exclusive | Mathieu Peybernes on the current situation at CD Lugo: “The club pays us 30% of our salary and this has saved other employees.”

Speaking as part of an exclusive interview with Get Spanish Football News, 29-year-old French central defender Mathieu Peybernes, currently on loan at CD Lugo from Guti’s UD Almería, discussed the current situation at the Segunda Division club.

Yeah, we agreed to alter our contracts. The club pays us 30% of our salary but this enables a fair bit of the other employees of the club and their salaries to be saved and kept in place. So, for us, “The Footballers,” we can at least make an effort to receive a little less money so that those that work for the club that make less, that are in a more difficult position, can benefit from these changes.

We were the ones who asked for this change because we know that for the club it’s difficult too. In Spain, because of all this, there’s also a lot of pressure from La Liga to restart the season.
