Liverpool reverse furlough decision and apologise after criticism

Apr 07, 2020 10:11 IST

Liverpool reversed their decision to place its non-playing staff on temporary leave amidst the coronavirus crisis. After heavy criticism from fans and few former players, the Premier League club on Monday apologised for coming to the wrong conclusion. Liverpool had earlier planned to use the government's furlough scheme and had announced that the staff members affected by this decision will be allowed to take 80% of their salary through the UK government's job retention scheme, with the club willing to complete the remaining salary to ensure financial damage was limited.
