FIFA to Cover Injured Marcelo's Salary for Real Madrid

MOST COMMENTED

FIFA has confirmed that it will pay Marcelo’s salary for Real Madrid for the duration of his injury, which was sustained during a training session with Brazil on Monday. The left-back’s injury, a broken fifth metatarsal -- which is expected to keep him out of action for up to three months -- qualifies for FIFA's Club Protection Program, an insurance scheme introduced earlier this year that compensates clubs when their players suffer long-term injuries while away on international duty.

According to La Marca, a player must kept out of action for 28 consecutive days or more in order to qualify for the insurance program. It provides a maximum daily compensation of $28,836, a limit that was set based on its overall $78.4 million budget. The amount of compensation is based on the player’s weekly or monthly wage, including all social security charges.

Marcelo earns $3 million per year after tax, so FIFA will be forced to pay Real Madrid $8,228 per day until he receives the all-clear to play again. Reports suggest he will be on the sidelines for three months, which means the Merengues should receive around $750,000 in compensation from FIFA.
