‘Liverpool Think They Can Do It Better Themselves’ – Finance Expert Claims Liverpool Causing Tension Among Other Premier League Sides

Last week The Athletic broke the news that a direct-to-consumer model for television rights was on the table with Premier League sides, a model that could see all Premier League games shown in one place. Finance expert Dan Plumley has claimed that Liverpool is causing tensions with other sides about this.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider Plumley said “Put it this way, if converting to an OTT model creates growth, clubs will be happy because it’s more than what they are getting currently,”

“But the tension with it is the big clubs want to do it themselves because they have got the biggest fanbase and know they can generate more than the league can on a central deal.

“The trade-off in that is that it works for the big clubs but it doesn’t work for the other clubs in the league who can’t command that type of fee.”
