Liverpool Board Expected To Back Jurgen Klopp With More Transfer Funds After Recording Profit In 2017

share on:

Jurgen Klopp is now expected have a healthy transfer fund to work with in the summer after the club recorded a £39m profit in their latest accounts.

Liverpool have turned a £21m loss in 2016 into a substantial profit in 2017 , largely thanks to the first year of the latest Premier League broadcasting deal and the redevelopment of the new Main Stand at Anfield.

Matchday revenue for home games increased from £12m to £74m due to increased hospitality sales in the first season of the new stand being open, although the figures do not take into account the £80m spend on Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Andrew Robertson, nor the club-record signing of Virgil van Dijk.

Those deals have been offset by the departure of Philippe Coutinho for a nine-figure sum in January, however, and The Guardian reports that Klopp will now be backed with large funds ahead of 2018-19.
