Liverpool don’t confirm or deny reports of paying Manchester City regarding a scouting issue
The Times (h/t Liverpool Echo) reported that an agreement was reached between the Premier League giants in 2013 after City found out that their scouting database was looked into.
The Liverpool Echo carried a statement from the Reds where they didn’t deny or accept the original report from the Times:
“Liverpool Football Club does not provide any comment on any allegations relating to legal agreements it may or may not have entered into with any other club, organisation or individual.”
Another battle between the pair
The two clubs were involved in a tight tussle in the 2013-14 season, with the Reds just missing out on the Premier League crown.
The pair was almost inseparable last season and we are leading the Cityzens in the league currently.
The rivalry between the two clubs has grown in recent seasons, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the Premier League this time around.
