Liverpool players set to receive tasty bonuses when they win the Premier League


It’s now a question of ‘when’ and not ‘if’ Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have won 24 of their 25 fixtures, meaning they’ve dropped just two points all season.

They currently have a 22-point lead over second-placed Manchester City and could wrap up their first Premier League title triumph as early as March 16 against Everton at Goodison Park.

Liverpool are on course to smash all sorts of records and will be remembered as one of the greatest teams we’ve ever seen during the Premier League era.

The job Klopp has done at Anfield in recent years is nothing short of extraordinary.

The Liverpool boss and his players are set to be rewarded with a series of bonuses at the end of the season, according to the Daily Mail.

After sealing the Premier League title, Liverpool’s players will share a bonus pot of over £4 million.

The report adds that all players who have played in the Premier League this season will be eligible for the bonus.

However, the bonus will be paid out on a sliding scale determined by the number of appearances, which seems fair enough.

First-team regulars like Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah can expect to receive an additional £150,000 on top of the standard win bonuses they get during the season.

Klopp, meanwhile, will receive a ‘significant bonus’ as the four-and-a-half-year contract he signed in December included several performance incentives on top of his £15 million salary.

If Liverpool continue playing like they have been this season then Klopp and his players will deserve every penny.

Interesting, the Reds received an even bigger bonus for winning last season’s Champions League.

The players shared £7 million between them after beating Tottenham in the final.

You wouldn’t bet against them winning both trophies this season.

While the Premier League appears to be in the bag now, Liverpool face a tough Round of 16 tie against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

But Klopp’s side are the best in Europe right now - and they fear absolutely nobody.
