Some Liverpool fans have been reacting to comments from former Manchester City player Danny Mills after he stated that Liverpool’s U-turn on their furlough stance does not excuse them for what they did.

The Reds recently went back on their decision to place non-playing staff on the government’s job retention scheme. This was due to the Premier League postponing all matches until further notice because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite making over £500m worth of turnover during the last financial year, we were prepared to let the taxpayer pay the wages of those added to the project.

Do Liverpool deserve credit for their U-turn?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Mills told Football Insider that the club deserves no credit for going back on their original conclusion, primarily because we were not going to go bust because of this situation.

As a result, supporters fumed at Mills and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan described him as “absolutely clueless”, while another stated that he was a “waste of anybody’s time”
