Liverpool ranked surprisingly low among clubs with most financial power but still manage to leapfrog United
- Soccerex have rated football clubs by their financial power.
- PSG are first with Man City second and it does not come as a surprise.
- Strangely, Liverpool are only eighth.
- Clubs as Spurs, Chelsea and even Arsenal have suprassed us.
Soccerex, a London-based company that analyses football market, has released a report that lists the most economically powerful clubs in the world.
In contrast to Deloitte's Football Money League which is based on revenue generated by a club, Soccerex's analysis takes into account playing assets, tangible assets, available cash, potential investment from owners and net debt.
So, Deloitte placed Liverpool seventh in the Money League, noting that the Reds are becoming more profitable with sporting results coming our way.
However, LFC are ranked only eighth by Soccerex. The company states that we are less financially powerful than Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal. However, the Reds have managed to overtake Man United who were eighth in the last year's edition and dropped to 16th place this year.
This table is way more important:
Our position in Soccerex's list looks quite strange as we are the reigning champions of Europe while, for example, Tottenham were in the CL final for the first time last year and Arsenal... Well, they were pretty good at some point in the 2000s, eh?
Here's how the top 10 looks like:
