Gary Lineker has offered to take BBC pay cut

OHMYGOSSIP — Gary Lineker has told the BBC he is prepared to reduce his £1.75 million salary take a pay cut.
The ‘Match of the Day’ host was revealed as the biggest star earner at the corporation during the 2018/19 financial year for his work on the Saturday night Premier League football highlights show, hosting ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ and the BBC’s coverage of international tournaments like the FIFA World Cup.
Gary, 58, is currently in talks with the BBC about a new contract and he has told bosses that he is prepared to be paid less in the interest of fairness.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper, he said: “I love my job at the BBC and I enjoy doing it. I’m currently negotiating a new contract with them and I’m ­volunteering to take less.”
The former England striker’s decision comes in the wake of the furore over the BBC decided to axe free TV licences for over-75s and the high salaries of the broadcaster’s top earners.
Six years ago, Gary – who also hosts BT Sport’s Champions League coverage – agreed to take a pay cut of £500,000 to remain the host of ‘Match of the Day’.
The Spurs legend – who is the face of Walker’s crisps and is believed to have a personal fortune of around £30 million – also spoke about his plans for his sports documentary company Goalhanger Films admitting he’s excited about the future projects the business has planned.
He said: “I’ve never had a business so that’s fun and we’ll be doing more sports documentaries and films.”
