Former European champions Manchester United will continue to pay their matchday staff despite the suspension of Premier League football until the end of next month.

The Premier League had earlier this month suspended two league matchdays until the 4th of April because of the dreaded Coronavirus before the meeting held on Thursday further led to another suspension.

It was agreed by the 20 Premier League clubs on Thursday that the league should be suspended indefinitely until April 30.

Despite the suspension, Manchester United will continue to pay their matchday staff which is around 3000 persons totalling £1m.

Manchester United will pay the 3,000 staffs whether the league finishes or not.

The Red Devils have just four games to play at home between now and the rest of the season.

Their last game at Old Trafford was the Manchester Derby win over noisy neighbours Manchester City on the 8th of March.

Manchester United strengthened their push for a place in the Champions League for next season with the win over Manchester City at home. The victory further cemented their place in the top five of the Premier League.

The game ended in a 2-0 win for Manchester United courtesy goals from French international Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay either side of the halftime interval.

Bruno Fernandes is a new signing for Manchester United and the Portuguese international star was instrumental to the aforementioned win over Manchester City. It was the third time that the Red Devils got the better of their rivals from four meetings in all competitions this season.

Manchester United signed Bruno Fernandes from Portuguese Super League outfit Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window and he was responsible for the assist that led to the first goal scored by Anthony Martial in the first half before the game was wrapped up by Scott McTominay in the dying moments.
