Bolton’s players are still waiting for their March wages as they prepare for today’s game against Derby County.
The Trotters have endured a very difficult season on the pitch, with Phil Parkinson’s men nine points from safety with just five games to play, making relegation to League One a certainty.
Yet, it’s issues away from the field that have dominated the headlines involving the club, with owner Ken Anderson desperate to sell.
And, the Bolton News have revealed that a ‘a heated meeting between players, coaching staff and PFA chief Richard Jobson produced no definitive answer on when overdue March wages would be sorted’.
As well as that, they claim that Anderson, who is out of the country, is hoping for talks with the PFA to prevent a future embargo that could hinder the club providing a sale goes through.
It’s another concerning update for the crisis club and it’s fair to say the fans are not happy with the situation.
Here’s some of the reaction on twitter…
I don't understand KA at all, he needs to sell but it seems at every turn he's the one endangering any possible sale. His behaviour with regard to salaries is just reprehensible. Every day it's something more damaging to the club . Who'd be motivated in this situation.

This may sound obvious, but if Anderson is so worried about league sanctions affecting a sale, why doesn’t he just pay his staff wages?

Why wait until next week to apply to ‘unfreeze’ the bank account? Will he go cap in hand to the PFA and Mike James to bail him out again? If the price of Anderson going is league 1, 12 point deduction and embargo then so be it. At least we’ll have our club back.

This saga is longer than any soap I know..it's got to stop.. respect to Parkinson on saying picking his side who are in the right frame of mind but he's still wrong man also in charge..complete overall needed under bassini or administration.

Surely hes not on holiday? More front than Blackpool if hes on holiday whilst nobody is getting paid.

Seriously Marc what is the best solution to get andersons out of this club because its looking very unlikely anyone will buy us with KA involved. Does that just leave administration? And who / how can the administration process start ?
