FIFA to pay Liverpool £2M as part of Joe Gomez wages

Liverpool and FIFA are set to discuss compensation of their defender Joe Gomez with the governing body set to pay £2 million to cover his wages.

The England defender sustained a serious knee injury during a training session before their 3-0 win against the Republic of Ireland.

Even though the compensation will benefit Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp is in serious defensive problems following a string of injuries in his first team.

FIFA covers compensation of all England players whenever they sustain injuries during matches or when training through a special programme.

The scheme will not only benefit Gomez but he will be entitled to the benefits until when he fully recovers and returns to full training.

Two days ago, Klopp lost Mohamed Salah who tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty for Egypt.

Although he has no symptoms, he will undergo further tests and isolation until when he tests negative.
