After reaching the UCL quarter-final for the fourth time under Klopp, Liverpool have earned a big sum of money.
Liverpool defeated Inter-Milan 2-1 over two legs to reach the quarter-final of this year’s UCL. Liverpool also had a 100% win record in this year’s competition up until the second leg.
Liverpool bag big money with entry into UCL quarter-final
After last night’s games, Man City and Real Madrid have joined Liverpool and Bayern Munich in the UCL top eight. The wait is now to see who the Reds get in the UCL quarter-final.
According to journalist Dave Phillips, Liverpool’s exploits have earned them 63 million pounds for fixed fees and coefficient payments.
In his tweet, Phillips wrote,
Tonight’s €10.6m for progress to the UCL quarter-finals means #lfc have now earned €75.38m in fixed fee and coefficient payments (excludes broadcast revenue).
The last sixteen tie against Inter itself got the club around 8.87 million pounds. They can win a further 10.5 million pounds if they qualify for the UCL semi-finals.
In relation to the price money, Klopp said,
You know, you earn a lot of money if you win Champions League games. Not me personally, it’s just for the club it’s important. So that’s what we will do.
This injection of funds will only benefit Liverpool. Not only will it help in the recovery from the financial hit the club took during the pandemic, but will also help fund transfers in the near future.
Liverpool’s maximum earning from the Champions League can be maximised to around 93.3 million pounds. This would be excluding the broadcast revenue, which adds more to the funds.
Having already won the Carabao Cup, if Liverpool were to win the FA Cup and go even further in the Premier League, the funds they earn could be increased even further.
Could this see Liverpool sign Kalvin Phillips or Jude Bellingham in the upcoming summer transfer window?
