It’s fair to say that since Liverpool appointed Jurgen Klopp as their manager, they’ve backed the German in the transfer market.
In fact, I’d say that a considerable fee has been spent turning the squad into one that is now in a position to challenge for the Premier League title.
But whilst some jealous supporters, of other clubs, might be churlish enough to suggest that Liverpool, like some clubs before them, have bought the title, it is pleasing to see that the club are living within their means.
In fact, when it comes to financial matters, Liverpool are expected to become a world leader when their financial accounts are published soon.
According to the news source, the Telegraph, Liverpool are set to become the first club in the world, that’s right in the world, to announce a net profit of more than €100 million, quite a feat I’m sure you’ll agree.
Delving down into the facts and figures, it appears that the majority of that profit came from the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona and that extraordinary journey that saw Liverpool reach the Champions League, the former generated €130 million whilst the latter generated €81.3 million.
Definitely a set of financial figures that are the envy of numerous clubs both in England and Europe.
