Liverpool post healthy profit despite transfer spending

first_img Read Also: EPL: Van Dijk praises Liverpool’s mental strength “Since this reporting period we have continued to reinvest in the club’s infrastructure, and we look forward to the opening of our new (£50 million) training base at Kirkby ahead of the new season, which will provide first-class facilities for our players and staff. “We have also just completed a second-phase consultation on a proposed expansion of the Anfield Road stand, which could see an increase in the stadium’s capacity.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Premier League leaders Liverpool made a pre-tax profit of £42 million ($54 million) last year despite a record £223 million investment on players, figures showed on Thursday. Liverpool have announced healthy financial results as they close in on the Premier League title While that top line is well below the record £125 million profit for the year ending May 2018, the rewards are being felt on the pitch, with the club just four victories away from winning their first league title in 30 years. Figures released for the financial year to May 31, 2019 incorporate the big-ticket purchases of Alisson Becker, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri. They also include the increased costs of new contracts for 11 players, including those for captain Jordan Henderson, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who have all played a key role in helping Jurgen Klopp’s champions-elect establish a 22-point lead at the top of the table. Some of that cost was offset by sales including Danny Ings, Dominic Solanke and Danny Ward. Income was also boosted by the club’s success in winning a sixth Champions League title, although as victory in the final in Madrid came in June the prize money will be counted in the current financial year. “This continued strengthening of the underlying financial sustainability of the club is enabling us to make significant investments both in player recruitment and infrastructure,” said chief operating officer Andy Hughes. “Being able to reinvest over £220 million on players during this financial period is a result of a successful business strategy, particularly the significant uplift in commercial revenues.” Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its GrowthBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemDisney’s Live-Action Simba Was Based On The Cutest Lion Cub Ever7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black Holes8 Things To Expect If An Asteroid Hits Our PlanetWhat Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?Ever Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?

Media revenues and commercial revenues were significantly higher and match revenue was also up. The rise is a result of a new Champions League broadcasting deal, finishing a close second to Manchester City in the Premier League and higher partnership and merchandising value, with Liverpool signing their first training kit sponsorship deal with AXA. “What we’re seeing is sustained growth across all areas of the club which is aligned to the recent performance on the pitch,” said Hughes.

Holloway challenge to players

first_img The Eagles head to St Mary’s on the back of a disappointing 2-0 home defeat by Swansea, where they never recovered from falling behind to a goal from Michu inside two minutes. Despite his side having now lost four of the opening five matches on their return to the top flight since winning promotion via the play-offs, Holloway remains confident this new-look Palace squad will soon gel – and is determined to make them harder to beat while also capable of landing a knockout blow of their own. Press Association “We will have to be slightly different away from home, but part of our game is drawing teams onto us and then knocking them out with a (sucker) punch,” Holloway said. “I don’t think we are going to be a Sugar Ray Leonard, I think we are going to be more of a Muhammad Ali against Joe Frasier (rope-a-dope in the 1974 Rumble in the Jungle). “I just want our lads to grow, and if we can give ourselves half a chance, then that will do. “We are going to have to set our stall out and then look to counter-attack, maybe get a set-piece and hurt them, if we can get a goal, then away we go. “It is more about staying in the games long enough when I can make those changes to try to go get the points – we have not had a draw yet, which is unbelievable if you think about the way we have played.” Southampton, who not so long ago were languishing in League One, picked up an impressive away win at previously unbeaten Liverpool last weekend as Mauricio Pochettino’s side continue their own development back among the elite clubs of English football. Holloway, though, is confident his men can rise to the challenge. “We will have massive respect from Southampton, where they have come from and where they are going, with their new ground now, and with what they have spent this summer, they are really going to have a go,” said Holloway, who can call on South African midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi again after his one-match suspension for a red card at Manchester United, although defender Damien Delaney (ankle) is sidelined. “They have some fantastic players, with great deliveries from dead balls and have Rickie Lambert who is the England striker at the moment, yes we have got to be aware of that, but we can also hurt them at the other end. “Southampton will be a fantastic opportunity to go and play on a wonderful surface to see if we can learn from the last game.” Holloway continued: “I am totally convinced our attitude and the way we are going to work hard for each other and what we have learned from last week, that we can take all of that into this next game. “We have got to be right at it and on our game, but we are trying to gel this lot together and learn from our mistakes. “As long as you improve and move forwards and don’t go backwards on your belief, that is all you can ask from the players.” Manager Ian Holloway has challenged his Crystal Palace players to box clever just like Muhammad Ali when their battle for Barclays Premier League survival continues at Southampton on Saturday.last_img read more

  Voigt Hopeful as Five Nigerians Make NBA Draft

first_img Nigeria’s senior national basketball team D’Tigers’ Coach, William Voigt, is excited with the news of five players of Nigerian descent selected in the 2017 NBA Draft which took place early last Friday.According to, Voigt who won Nigeria its first African cup believes the future is surely bright for the country’s basketball.Shortly after the draft, Voigt tweeted, “The future is bright” in reference to the five picks.The American is already warming up for a defence of the African title after his last outing at the Rio 2016 Olympics.Ogugua ‘OG’ Anunoby – Indiana – 6’8″ 215lbs was picked at number 23 by no other than Toronto Raptors headed by a former Nigeria international Masai Ujiri.Anunoby suffered the knee injury in January and required surgery, but his numbers improved nearly across the board from his freshman to sophomore campaigns before the setback. That injury did not scare the Raptors as they look more into the future.Going by ESPN reports this young Nigerian power forward has elicited comparisons to San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard on the high end, and more reasonable comparisons to Portland Trail Blazers Nigerian forward Al-Farouq Aminu.It is hoped that he could team up someday with Al-Farouq in the Nigeria national side D’Tigers. The Nigeria teams – men and women – have been largely dominated in the last decade by players of Nigerian decent based in the USA and Europe.London-born Anunoby was raised in Jefferson City, Missouri by Nigerian parents. With a brother (Chigbo Anunoby) who made it to the NFL, O.G will be the second Anunoby to turn professional in a major sport.Ike Anigbogu – UCLA – 6’10” 230lbs got picked at number 47 by Indiana Pacers. ESPN’s draft projections had suggested Anigbogu to be taken with the 17th pick of the 1st round by the Portland Trail Blazers but it was the Pacers that grabbed him.The California-born son of Nigerian immigrants is one of the quickest big men in the draft, as evidenced by his ability to get down court before opposing bigs on fast breaks.Bam Adebayo – Kentucky – 6’10” 250lbs was the quickest of the picks at number 12 for the Miami Heat. Experts determine that Cleveland Cavaliers centre Tristan Thompson and Orlando Magic Centre Bismack Biyombo are the best comparison for Adebayo and his game at this point.The son a Nigerian father, Bam Adebayo moved with his mother to North Carolina from Newark, NJ at the age of seven.Wesley Iwundu – Kansas State – 6’7″ 205lbs got in at 33 for Orlando Magic. The small forward and his Kansas State University had a short stay in the 2017 NCAA tournament in March as they won their play-in game/First Four game versus Wake Forest before losing to Cincinnati in the first round of the tournament. Those two games served as an introduction to Iwundu for Non-Big 12 fans of the collegiate game, ESPN reported.Jesusemilore “Semi” Ojeleye – SMU – 6’7″ 235lbs became the 37 pick of the event for the Celtics. The small forward is the son of a Nigerian doctor and nurse.The Philadelphia 76ers selected point guard Markelle Fultz with the top pick in the Draft, while Lonzo Ball went to the Los Angeles Lakers. 1. 76ers: Markelle Fultz (G) – Washington2.
