Champions League: Liverpool Pocket $108 Million As Spurs Get $104 Million

Liverpool Pocket $108 Million

Liverpool are champions of Europe for a sixth time following their victory over Tottenham in Madrid.

The Reds came out on top in a disappointing final thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

The celebrations continued long into the night with Jurgen Klopp hailing the success as the best moment of his career.

Liverpool’s victory will also provide a significant boost to the Anfield coffers due to the prize money on offer in the Champions League.

Klopp’s men will earn just under £17million for lifting the trophy – adding to the total they have already received over the course of the competition.

Champions League sides share a prize fund of £1.73bn. The group stage is worth around £13.2m, with performance bonuses also paid out for each match that is won or lost.

A further £8.2m is earned by reaching the last-16, £9m for getting to the quarter-finals and £10.3m for making the last four.

Liverpool and Tottenham both guaranteed themselves £12.9m by reaching the Champions League final.
