Priorities made clear!
The Reds have attempted to do their part for the Merseyside community by donating to local food banks. The club has launched new schemes to help the vulnerable and ensuring their staff are paid in spite of matches being suspended.
Liverpool could end up paying as much as £750,000 to help pay the non-essential staff for the suspended home games. The club alongside the LFC Foundation and Red Neighbours also pledged £40,000 to back Fans Supporting Foodbanks in the absence of Premier League football.
