Time to sort out the sick pay

Recommended Posts

Dont know how many others felt this way but after all those months of waiting for Owen to return to fitness there was something of the inevitable he would pick up some kind of injury in Germany.

Also i noticed that in an interview before the start of the competition he said he had been feeling fine for some time, not what we were told was it?

 

Now while not being unsympathetic to Owens plight the favct remains we have been paying him 5 TIMES MOST OF OUR ANNUAL SALARIES EVERY WEEK while his foot mended now it looks like we have got to do the same untill Christmas at least that means he will have played for us for just 20 minutes THIS YEAR.

 

THAT WORKS OUT TO AROUND 4333 POUNDS A SECOND

 

Unbelievable isnt it. Surely something needs to be done to ease the burden on a club when a player is off long term injured like this. Some kind of insurance scheme perhaps?

Possibly, but thats up to the people that run the club. Don't know what sort of scheme (if any) we've got in place or how it compares to the norm/other clubs. We just put our hopes and dreams in their capable hands.

Newcastle to be paid Owen damages

 

 

Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd has confirmed that the club will receive compensation from the Football Association for Michael Owen's injury.

 

Owen was ruled out for several months with knee ligament damage after falling awkwardly in the draw with Sweden.

 

The England striker has returned to the Newcastle to begin his rehabilitation.

 

Shepherd said: "The FA insures England players when they are on international duty should compensation issues arise and that applies in Michael's case."

 

FA spokesman Adrian Bevington agreed: "We have an insurance policy in place for all players that covers their salaries while they are injured."

 

Owen has managed only 10 starts and one further appearance as a substitute since his arrival at St James' Park last summer.

 

And Shepherd is thought to have taken out additional coverage with the FA against a serious injury to his £17m signing.

 

"If you lend tools to someone and they come back broken you shouldn't have to pay for the repair and that is what happened to Newcastle," said Shepherd.

 

"The FA have a level of compensation and we insured Michael above that but compensation isn't high enough in my opinion."

 

"I nearly vomited when it happened. You can imagine, we've just got him fit for England, he's played very well for Newcastle this year, he plays two games for England, and he is substituted.

 

"And now he's sent back to Newcastle for us to more or less pick up the pieces. So we don't think any manager, or chairman, or supporter, is going to be very happy with that."

Not that I'm arsed, but can you imagine the insurance premium the FA were paying on a currently physically unfit, injury prone £100,000 per week player who was still recovering from a recently 'healed' injury
