Club record of £190m invested in squad driven from record annual revenues... https://t.co/I3HJRqRUAs— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 8, 2019
This profit comes despite a £190m investment in the playing squad, with Jurgen Klopp's side spending heavily to recruit the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Alisson.
"This growth and increase in revenue has enabled us to significantly reinvest both in the playing squad and the football operational infrastructure.
"Financial results do fluctuate depending on player trading costs and timing of payments, but what's clear in these latest results is the further strengthening of our underlying financial footing and profits being reinvested in the squad and infrastructure.
“Since the reporting period, which is now nearly 12 months old, we have continued reinvesting in the playing squad from those areas of growth. In addition, the capital investment in our new training complex in Kirkby is well underway which will provide first-class amenities for our players and staff, and will vastly improve sports facilities for the community of Kirkby.
“With the continued support of our ownership group, performance on the pitch and maintaining our priority of reinvesting back into the squad, we remain focused towards fulfilling all our football ambitions.”
