Nigerian midfielder Ogehenekaro Etebo is set for a cut in his pay at Turkish club Galatasaray.
Reports indicate that as part of its ongoing plans to save the club from the post-Covid-19 financial meltdown, Galatasaray has slammed a 15 percent salary pay cut on its players.
Etebo joined Gala from England’s Stoke City on a year loan deal with an option to buy, but Fanatik reported that the Nigerian is under 15per cent salary pay cuts which also applied to the entire team to enable the club to save over 30 million Euros this season.
Fanatik reported that the total cost of the A-Team was reduced to 40 million Euros alongside coach Fatih Terim and his assistants.
Meanwhile, Etebo will be serving his one-match ban against Erzurum this weekend after the former Getafe midfielder was red-carded against Alanyaspor.
The duo of Taylan and Belhanda are expected to serve in the middle field instead of the Nigerian.
Etebo joined Gala this summer on a season loan deal with an option to buy. He was loaned to Getafe last season and produced one goal in 11 appearances.
The 24-year-old also scored two goals and one assist in 51 games for Stoke City.
In 2018, the highly itinerant Nigerian midfielder also joined Stoke City from Portugal’s CD Feirense for a transfer fee of €7.2 million ($8.5 million).
