Liverpool players to share whopping bonus pot for Premier League triumph

Liverpool’s first-team stars will divide a bonus kitty of £4million between them should they clinch the Premier League title this season, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side remain unbeaten after 25 games this term – winning 24 – and have a 22-point lead at the top of the table.

The Reds need six wins from their final 13 games to win the club’s first league title in 30 years, having claimed 97 points and finished second behind Manchester City last season.

Liverpool as a club are set to pocket a sizeable amount for winning the Premier League but according to the Daily Mail, so too are the players.

The newspaper claims that all those who have made an appearance in the top flight will get a share of a £4m kitty, with each player’s share based on their number of outings.

Furthermore, first-team regulars such as Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker will take home around £150,000 on top of the regular bonuses they receive throughout the season.

The Daily Mail also says that Klopp is set to receive a bonus, with the new contract he signed in December including several performance incentives to add to his £15m salary.

Liverpool’s next game comes after the winter break on February 15 when they travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.

 

 

The Reds beat the Canaries 4-1 on the opening weekend of the season, with Daniel Farke’s side currently seven points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table.

Back-up goalkeeper Adrian, who made his Liverpool debut in that game, is reportedly on the way out of Anfield this summer after accepting an offer to return to LaLiga.

The Spaniard came on following Alisson’s calf injury and enjoyed a stunning opening week with Liverpool, playing a part in the club’s UEFA Super Cup triumph over Chelsea a few days later.

However, according to Spanish newspaper Estadio Deportivo, Adrian has accepted a return to Real Betis, with Klopp now looking to find new back-up between the sticks.
