Liverpool's reported wage bill reveals some surprises

Jose Enrique's agent should be beatified.

The man is clearly a modern day miracle-worker as he managed to blag his client an outrageous contract that sees the former Spain international earn thousands of pounds each week, despite the fact most of us had forgotten he was a Liverpool player.

Enrique isn't alone however in making a killing while sitting on the bench at Anfield judging by this report from The Daily Star.

Captain Jordan Henderson is apparently only the joint fourth highest paid player at the club, while the paper claims that Christian Benteke is the club's highest paid player, even though the Belgian appears to have been frozen out under Jurgen Klopp.


Benteke is said to be earning an eye-popping £140,000 per week, while Enrique takes home a cool £75,000 every seven days.

The real scandal, however, is that Philippe Coutinho is paid less than fellow Brazilian Lucas.

Liverpool's top ten earners:
1. Christian Benteke £140,000
2. James Milner £120,000
Daniel Sturridge £120,000
4. Jordan Henderson £100,000
Roberto Firmino £100,000
6. Lucas £80,000
7. Jose Enrique £75,000
Mamadou Sakho £75,000
Philippe Coutinho £75,000
Martin Skrtel £75,000

No wonder the club wanted to charge the fans more money for tickets from next season.
