The plan after the success – to give Jannes a salary

The plan after the success – to give Jannes a salary

 

Peter Gerhardsson’s success with the national team continues.

It can be seen in the salary envelope.

– He definitely deserves that, says the Swedish Football Association’s general secretary Håkan Sjöstrand.

For the fourth time, Peter Gerhardsson has led Sweden to a semi-final in a championship. After victory against Japan, Blågult faces Spain in the WC semi-final on Tuesday.

The successes are also felt at the bank.

In 2020, Peter Gerhardsson had a taxed income of SEK 1.56 million. In the last two years, the national team captain has received a decent salary increase.

In 2022, he brought in 2.66 million kroner, writes Nyheter24 .

– When it comes to wages, it’s a dialogue between employers and employees, so I keep that dialogue between me and our union captains. The compensation offered is a combination of fixed and variable part, as well as the possibility of salary change according to the agreements we have agreed on, says the Swedish Football Association’s general secretary Håkan Sjöstrand.

Has Gerhardsson earned that increase?

– Yes, definitely. Peter does a fantastic job. I am incredibly grateful for the meeting we had a number of years ago over a cup of coffee and a cheese sandwich at his home in Gothenburg and found out that he became the national team captain.

Want to reduce the wage gap
At the same time that Peter Gerhardsson’s salary is increased, there is still a big difference compared to the men’s national team’s national team captain Janne Andersson’s salary.

In 2021, Andersson had a taxed income of SEK 4.3 million.

But that pay gap can narrow. In any case, that is what the association works for, says Håkan Sjöstrand.

– It reflects the agreement we have with a combination of a fixed and a variable part in compensation. Our goal is to even it out even more in the future, it is also affected by the championship compensation we get to share, says Håkan Sjöstrand.

– If you follow it forward, you will see that it evens out even more.
