Many Liverpool fans fumed at owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) over the prospect of their club losing £150m in revenue.
The Liverpool Echo reported that the Reds could lose out on the nine-figure sum if they fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League – with Jurgen Klopp’s side sitting fourth in the Premier League table before Sunday’s games.
John Henry, the club’s majority shareholder, was firm in his stance throughout January that the Merseysiders would not be bringing any new faces in. This was drastically changed and Liverpool brought both Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies through the door to combat the ongoing injury crisis.
On the back of this, the Reds have lost three games in a row with captain Jordan Henderson having to deputise as a centre-back, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all out with season-ending injuries.
Will Liverpool qualify for the Champions League?
As a result, supporters declared that they will point the finger at FSG if they miss out on the top four places this season, with some suggesting that they reacted far too slow last month.
Fans let rip at FSG
“It’s all on FSG !!!!!!!!!!!!”
“Completely their own fault. Zero investment apart from minimal money”
“In all honesty, I put the position we’re in now down to FSG. Right now, I couldn’t care less where we finish… I’m more bothered about getting Jürgen back to how we know him… and at this moment, he needs a break”
“FSG excuse for not spending this summer”
“Who cares? Not as if FSG would’ve given that money for transfers”
