Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a story on the club’s finances, as the Reds secured record-high profits in 2018.
According to Paul Joyce of The Times, Liverpool set a world-record profit of £125 million in the financial year ending May 2018.
The Reds were in deep financial trouble under previous owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett, as reported by The Liverpool Echo, but the heavily-criticised Fenway Sports Group have got things back on track and so much more.
Who has the loudest fans in Europe? PSG certainly state their claim in the video below…
The American owners were bashed tirelessly by supporters during their first few years at the club, as the Anfield faithful were just fed up of poor transfer business and trophy-less seasons.
While the latter of those things hasn’t changed (yet), the Reds are now kings of the transfer market, regularly hailed as one of the best operators in the business.
On top of that, Joyce reports that the club recorded £125m profit last year, a whopping £40m increase on the previous year.
This is even including the £190m Jurgen Klopp splashed out on the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Alisson Becker, and fans are heaping praise on the previously divisive FSG.

Well done FSG I have to admit I was not a fan a few years ago But i totally understand that they done it the right way, slow steady grow and the club is in safe hand and can only go up from here .

Hope they’re putting that profit into a separate account called “Koulibaly money”
