Xavi Hernández wanted to set an example when helping his club, Al Sadd, for the duration of the activity stoppage in Qatari football due to the coronavirus pandemic, agreeing to a 40% reduction in salary their annual record. In addition, the players in the squad have also agreed to lower the salary bill, although in their case we are talking about a lower percentage, around 25%. Those who will not be affected by their payroll are the rest of the staff that work in Al Sadd, since their salaries are considered relatively low compared to the head coach and other players.It is not the first gesture Xavi has during the pandemic. We must not forget that the former blaugrana donated a million euros to the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona in early April in his fight against the coronavirus, also sending a message through social networks encouraging people to collaborate in the ‘Join Coronavirus Response’ project. Right now, no one knows for sure when they will return to football in Qatar. Although it is true that the virus has spread in a much milder way than in other countries -the total count today was 5,448 cases and 8 deaths-, the authorities have already postponed the start of training in Qatari clubs for three times: the new date set by the Federation to return to the activity is next Thursday, April 30.Al Sadd still has three titles to play this season. After winning the Qatar Super Cup and the Prince Cup, he still has the League – he occupies third place eleven points behind the leader, Al Duhail, with seven days to go – the Asian Champions – leads his group after having played two days – and the Emir Cup.
