Fans think players can save Pompey

Published Add your comment

A Portsmouth fans group has made a last-ditch plea to Pompey's senior players to take a pay cut in a bid to stop the club going out of business.

The financially stricken club's administrators had announced last week that Portsmouth could fold unless more of the squad can be sold off to further reduce the wage bill at Fratton Park. It is understood eight senior players have yet to reach agreement with the club over unpaid salaries.

Supporters group SOS Pompey handed over an open letter to the players at Portsmouth's Eastleigh training ground on Monday morning in an attempt to make them compromise on their wages. Spokesman Bob Beech told BBC Solent: "This is the end game for Pompey, in a couple of weeks it will be over."
