Liverpool jump ahead of Man City and PSG to become fifth richest club

Virgil Van Dijk-Liverpool

Liverpool have made it to the top five of richest clubs list.

Liverpool have made it to fifth place of Europe’s richest clubs according to the annual report of Deloitte Money League.

The Reds have beaten the likes of elites like Manchester City and Paris Saint Germain to jump into the fifth place of Europe’s richest clubs.

The main reason for Liverpool becoming Europe’s big money elite tends to be the success they enjoyed over the past two seasons, winning the Champions League followed by a long-awaited Premier League title.

However, many of Europe’s top clubs suffered a massive dip in their revenues owing to the pandemic, which hindered the tv revenue and also the ticket sales because of the games being played behind closed doors.

With many clubs submitting their annual financial accounts, La Liga giants Barcelona are the biggest victim of the pandemic whilst the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Tottenham aren’t also exceptions.

The Catalan’s club revenue was £741m in the 2018/19 season but it has fallen massively to £627.1m. Man Utd’s revenue also dropped from £627m to £509m.

Nonetheless, Barca and Madrid are still topping the list for being Europe’s money elite ahead of Bayern Munich and United.

Liverpool have been placed in the top five list for the first time since 2001/02 season and it shows how Jurgen Klopp has turned them into a top unit.

The Reds have been fairly inconsistent this season, currently placed fourth in the Premier League and their title defence is looking in slight jeopardy.
