LFC turnover passes £500 million, with £42 million pre-tax profit

It's been a truly phenomenal, club record breaking couple of years under Jurgen Klopp and the finances off the pitch have now started to reflect that too.

According to reports this morning, winning the Champions League and finishing 2nd in the Premier League saw the club increase profits by over £80 million, posting a club turnover of £533 million.

Passing the half a billion in turnover for the first time is clearly a significant point for the club, as Liverpool finally enter the financial elite, after threatening to for many years.

But perhaps more significantly is that the club has, under FSG, done it all legitimately. Unlike our nearest rivals Man City, who lodged their appeal yesterday against a ban for breaches of FFP.

What probably makes the figures even more impressive though is the fact that LFC brought in half a dozen players for close to £200 million, gave 11 first-team players new, long-term contracts and put down the £50 million for the new training complex at Kirkby.

Liverpool remain 7th in Deloitte's list however, but we'd be highly surprised if that didn't change after what looks like being another hugely successful season, with the Premier League just 4 wins away and the possibility of a Champions League run once again.
