Due to a terrible run of results this season, Leicester City are currently occupying the 19th spot in the Premier League rankings
Two Super Eagles stars, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, would see a significant pay cut if Leicester City gets demoted from the English Premier League, Soccernet.ng reports.
Leicester City currently sits in the Premier League relegation zone and are two points from safety as they welcome Liverpool to the King Power Stadium this evening for a crucial match.
Meanwhile, following a report, Ndidi, Iheanacho, and other members of the team’s pay could be reduced by up to 50% if they were to be relegated from the Premier League.
With just two games remaining—a challenging trip to Newcastle United and a final-day home match against West Ham United—the Foxes know that a loss will play a significant role in determining their fate when the two teams square off.
The East Midlands, however, may experience more financial difficulties as a result of the team’s record-setting pretax losses of £92.5 million earlier this year, which may have an impact on the players’ salary, according to sources from The Telegraph.
However, if Dean Smith’s side defeats the Reds tonight and how much the other clubs perform in their next few games of the Premier League’s 2022-2 season campaign, things might flip around for Dean Smith’s squad.
