During the 2019/2020 football season, Manchester City were the highest wage spenders in the country, totalling $8.73m per week – a whopping sum. Manchester United were the biggest for the two previous years, while Sheffield United, who climbed into the EPL from the Championship this season, paid the least – around $900k – in 2019/20. Liverpool are third football club in the list and here is the comparison between the top Liverpool players’ salary and the new England patriots players’ salary.
Liverpool was the seventh highest spending football club in the world on wages in 2019, with annual cost of €604m – about right considering we’re the the world’s eighth most valuable football club, estimated at $2.183bn. The club is one of the most largely supported teams in the world.
Liverpool has long-standing rivalries with Manchester United and Everton. The club has got six European Cups, more than any other English club, three UEFA Cups, four UEFA Super Cups, one FIFA Club World Cup, eighteen League titles, seven FA Cups, a record eight League Cups, one Football League Super Cup and fifteen FA Community Shields. The salary detail of this club’s top players is as follows:
- Mohamed Salah:
Mohamed Salah is an expert Egyptian footballer who plays as a striker for Liverpool and Egypt’s national side. Salah was a Chelsea player and was purchased by Liverpool at a deal costing £35m after his spell at Roma.
The total wage of Salah is evaluated to be around $2.25m/year. Salah earns £90,000 every week at Liverpool, which is less in contrast with players like Alexis Sanchez gaining £300,000 or Aubameyang who gets £180,000.
- Roberto Firmino:
Firmino is one of Brazil’s stars, alongside Neymar and Coutinho. In 2015, Liverpool signed him for £29m. He made his friendly debut in August 2015 and has been a fan favourite ever since. His agreement with Liverpool, after bonuses, is around £180k/w.
- Virgil Van Dijk:
Virgil Van Dijk has built up himself as a standout amongst other focal defenders in the world after his £75m move to Anfield in January 2018. The progress made him the world’s highest paid defender. His mega-deal is worth £200k/w. The club announced in September: “Van Dijk’s existing contract was not due to end until 2023 after his move from Southampton for £75m only 20 months earlier.”
- Jordan Henderson:
Henderson ascended to to the top in 2011 and has skippered the side since 2015. In 2019, Henderson made £110k/w. He renewed terms in 2018. The contract is worth £25m from 2018-2023, (£5.2 million) guaranteed payout per season. In 2008 in his first deal with Sunderland, Henderson made £50k/w. His wages though are supplemented with $1.5m every year from his sponsor, Nike, whose boot he wears in all matches.
- James Milner:
Milner’s contract at Manchester City was actually more than he gets now – worth £21.5m to him in total. But at Liverpool, he’s still very well compensated after he arrived on a Bosman from our rivals.
