@Ashh1390: 23 grand wow, don’t think you’re getting all that experience for that lads.

@samyates_24: Can’t @GNev2 do it seeing how much he bangs on about how easy goalkeeping is!

@jamiet1709: Worse than minimum wage

@chrissycnufc92: Great to see the massive Labour advocate @GNev2 paying a proper wage 👏👏👏👏👏 proper showing these tories how to go on 😂😂😂

@DCFCChristopher: Lol 23k are you taking the piss? Costs probably 5k get the badges

@wxm14cc: Jesus Christ! I nearly pay that for my staff to wrap chips!!

@LTFC_Col77: That’d about £11 an hour @GNev2 piss poor

@sstretchh83: Paper rounds pay more 🤦‍♂️

@RedAlexCrewe: I earned more than this 20 years ago in a basic logistics job. Football is absolutely fucked if the coaching staff are being paid a year what some of the first team will be earning a month.

@RBSeanDye: £11.50 an hour for those demands is shameful. Often coaches will spend far more time than they’re paid for planning and learning on the side too. Stop shafting coaches!

@TheRydoggFB: This is a joke. I’m a grassroots coach, I’ve already spent over £1000 on various badges and I’ve not even touched any UEFA licenses. 23k is absolutely nothing these days in any line of work. 23k for a 6 day a week job and 55+ hours 🤢🗑️

@Matt05082152: Thought we got a fashion guru onboard that home kits absolutely toilet

@gazzerbell: £23k @GNev2 man of the people 😩

@PabloAnon010: This is a disgrace @GNev2 how do you genuinely think that a GK coach with all the experience required would do this job for peanuts? Again, another club undermining such a pivotal role.

@Rss_Prk: The Premier League need to immediately prevent Salford getting a new GK coach until they investigate why BBC Dragon @GNev2 can’t pay a qualified employee more than £23k a year in a cost of living crisis.

@RodJones1960: £11 an hour, it’s barely above national living wage 😂😂.

@hbotterill19: For all that Gary Nev shouts about wages etc he pays a shite one.

@noboydy73: @GNev2 you want someone to guide youngsters and hopefully produce players that will cost you thousands and you value that at 23 grand ..your a shambles bloke
