Former England striker Kevin Phillips believes that most the players within Liverpool’s squad are worth £50 million-plus.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has assembled a seriously talented squad of players that take to Anfield on a weekly basis.
In the past eight months, Liverpool have won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup.
Liverpool are also 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, and they should be awarded the trophy regardless of the issues that the coronavirus is causing.
As of result of Liverpool’s success, Phillips believes that most the players within the squad are worth £50 million-plus.
Phillips told Football Insider, as cited by Live4Liverpool: “They are the reigning European champions and have dominated the Premier League this season. When you analyse the team player for player and compare them against various clubs in Europe, Liverpool have more variety across the squad. They have top quality players in every position. That is not anything against Manchester City but I would not argue with that.
“The majority of those players if they were sold tomorrow, every player is £50million plus if not more. Value for money certainly.”
Phillips does make a good point. With how the market has gone over the years, it is not a silly comment by the former England striker at all. It is bold, but not silly.
To play for Liverpool now, you need to be a top player. There is a reason the club have been so successful as 0f late, and a lot of that stems from the fact that the players possess talent and a seriously positive attitude.
