Liverpool FC 2019/20 wages: How much do the Reds players earn? Let us look at the salaries handed out to Jurgen Klopp’s rampaging side.
Liverpool are on the verge of becoming the Champions of England. The Premier League is the only major title that Liverpool have failed to win under Jurgen Klopp. They won the Champions League this season and the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup last month.
The Reds have captured the imagination of the world with their fearless brand of football. One that has made them seem invincible to the point that many have predicted that Jurgen Klopp’s men may win their maiden Premier League title with an unbeaten season.
Some think that the side may go on to complete the European Treble and become only the 2nd English team after Sir Alex Ferguson led Manchester United to complete enviable achievement. What makes this transformation even more remarkable is the minimal net spend on recruiting players.
The club however, pays good money to their players for their services. In fact. They are the third highest wage payers in England, only behind Manchester United and Manchester City, and we know exactly how the money is distributed among their players thanks to data from Sportrac.
Liverpool FC 2019/20 Wages Revealed
In total, Liverpool pay more than £110 million per year in player wages.
The list throws sheds light on some surprising facts. Such as Adam Lallana earning £10,000 more than Sadio Mane, who earns £100,000-per-week. In fact, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita, both of whom are not clearly a notch or two below Mane also earn £20,000 more!
Even more surprising is the fact that the star full back pairing of Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are close to the bottom of the wage list with a salary of £50,000-per-week and £40,000-per-week respectively.
Conversely, unsurprisingly, Mohamed Salah is the highest earner in the club. Roberto Firmino and Virgil Van Dijk closely behind him. The trio are followed by their Captain and Vice-Captain Jordan Henderson and James Milner.
The highest earners deserve every single penny they pocket. However, hopefully, Sadio Mane and the Full-backs get a raise soon for the incredible performances they put in week in and week out.
