Liverpool: Fans outraged over ‘disgraceful’ update from club

Liverpool: Fans outraged over ‘disgraceful’ update from club - Liverpool

Liverpool are the latest Premier League club to announce they will be placing some non-playing staff on a furloughed wage, but will be taking 80% from government funds (via BBC Sport).

Due to the effects of recent events, the government have set up a furlough scheme for workers who have been temporarily suspended due to the UK being on lockdown.

Top-flight clubs Newcastle, Tottenham, Bournemouth and Norwich have all placed some of their non-playing employees on furlough, with Liverpool becoming the latest of the Premier Leagues sides to follow suit. However, the Merseyside outfit will be using the 80% wage offered by the government’s scheme in order to pay their staff and have vowed to use the club’s own money to top up the remaining 20%.
