Loads of Liverpool fans were delighted to discover that the club’s turnover has risen by 77%.
The club’s official website announced on Thursday that they have a pre-tax profit of £42m for the 2018/19 tax year, despite a record £223m investment on players. The Reds’ turnover figures reached an eye-watering £533m, compared to £301m that was recorded three years ago. This also does not take into account their Champions League final victory against Tottenham in June, as per talkSPORT.
While the figure of £42m is below that of the record £125m from the previous year, this includes the purchases of players such as Alisson Becker and Fabinho, and also included the increased costs of 11 new contracts that have extended players’ spells at Anfield. With this in mind, supporters were delighted and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that the Kop faithful do not appreciate the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) enough, while another described the results as “unreal”.

Imagine in the next few years, LFC turnover > ManU, more top flight titles than ManU, and a few shattered records along the way. Now, where’s that perch again?
