Liverpool to GIVE BACK massive £17.3M from title winning campaign

Liverpool face having to GIVE BACK a massive £17.3m from their Premier League title winning campaign.

The Premier League has told their 20 clubs last season they faced a £330m collective rebate to broadcasters for 2019-20 as a result of the impact of the coronavirus crisis.

Now figures published within the Premier League rulebook for the new season outline the anticipated repayments to be demanded from clubs.

Clubs will pay back around 10.7 per cent of the money that would have been due to them.

But with those total pay-outs established by a process involving a basic share plus payments for final positions and live TV games, the money chart does not entirely mirror the end of season table.

According to the figures, Liverpool's initial payment of £161.1m will be reduced to £143.8m.

Manchester City, who finished second, will pay back £16.8m of their intended £156.7m for a total of £139.9m.
