Damien Duff Opens Up Regarding His Wage Situation At Shamrock Rovers

Just over a month after signing for Shamrock Rovers, Damien Duff is expected to finally make his League of Ireland debut on Monday night when Rovers take on Cork City at the Tallaght Stadium. The game is live on RTÉ.

A week before Duff put pen to paper, the Irish Daily Mail reported that the former Ireland international would not be receiving a regular wage at the club and would instead donate his earnings to charity.


That report has turned out to be accurate.

Duff told the Sunday Times that 'every penny he gets is going to charity'.

I don’t want a penny. I thought it would be something nice to do because I just want to play football.

The only thing I’ve taken from Rovers is the loan of a car through Hyundai until I sort my situation out. Otherwise, every penny I get — whether it be bonuses, incentives or whatever, appearance money — is all going to those two charities 50-50.

I’ve done a bit in the past with charities, including Heart Children Ireland because of my son, and it was straightforward enough. I don’t want to make a big story out of it.

The charities are close to my heart. My son’s operation took place in London but the check-ups were done here.
