Despite the distress this caused, players responded in a professional manner, continued to train and felt a duty to complete fixtures.” Speaking to talkSPORT yesterday, Martin responded: “I’m surprised the PFA have come out and said that. “Everybody else at the club accepted the situation, with the exception of six players. read also:Campbell wants Arsenal to sell TEN players this summer “Everybody else has been paid in full, and those six were paid in full up to the furloughing start date. “After that they were paid the remaining proportion of their wages.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The League One strugglers are not in a good position, as they have furloughed several of their players during this crisis.
