The Reds banked £152 million from television revenues last season, which is the highest figure of any team in Europe for the 2018/19 campaign, according to the Liverpool ECHO.
Manchester City, who won the Premier League title, were the next highest recipients at £151 million, but the Champions League victory, as well as the fact that the Reds are more popular across the world than Pep Guardiola’s side, meant they came out on top in that regard.
Barcelona, who won the Spanish top flight, picked up £130 million, while Bayern Munich got just £88 million and Juventus scooped only £77 million, which just goes to show the power of the Premier League and how much of an advantage the English teams have.
Incredibly, Bayern Munich picked up less than Huddersfield Town in television money last season, despite the Yorkshire side being relegated to the Championship.
All of the figures can only be good for the Reds: the suggestion that Virgil van Dijk was to be handed a new and improved deal was reportedly untrue, but big contracts to the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah have been handed out recently, and revenue streams like this are what fund those contracts.
No major signings were made this summer, but that will change in the future when more big fees of the kind paid for Van Dijk and Alisson over the last 18 months will be seen.
