Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has called on Premier League sides to help bail out lower-division clubs that are in financial crisis.


The Premier League has been in discussions with the English Football League over an injection of cash that could reportedly be as high as £250 million ($318m).

Clubs across the UK were dealt a major blow this week when the government confirmed that restrictions on fans in stadiums could last for another six months. That has left many clubs facing even more dire financial situations as the fallout from the coronavirus crisis continues.

 

Klopp believes that the biggest clubs in the UK have an obligation to help those who are struggling financially.

 


“In general people in a better position should help people in a less good position, 100 per cent,” Klopp said on Friday. “I don’t understand the structure 100% – in Germany you have Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga, so they have to share the problems so that makes things slightly easier.

 

 

“There isn’t a general answer – people in a better position should help other people but the position in this moment for all clubs is not really easy. I don’t know how the government finds time to think about that, but I get it 100%. So, yes football should try to help themselves, ourselves – however we should say it – I agree 100%.”
