    Liverpool legend John Barnes hits back at criticism of his former side for their preliminary decision to furlough non-playing personnel.

    Liverpool legend John Barnes has actually struck back at criticism of his former side for their preliminary decision to furlough non-playing personnel.

    The Reds had actually initially positioned 200 of their personnel on furlough in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic prior to reversing the decision 2 days later on after dealing with heavy criticism.

    Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur have actually likewise benefited from the federal government effort, and Barnes thinks that clubs are within their rights to get the plan.

    Speaking to Bonus Offer Code Bets, Barnes stated: “We can all speak about concepts and morality, however the federal government have actually provided this plan, and it does not remove from anybody else that desires to take part.

    ” There isn’t a set quota, so Liverpool are well within their rights to takefurlough I do not feel the club are incorrect to be checking out this as an option as we do not understand for how long this situation is going to go on for.

    ” Football clubs are going to have to let personnel go completely, perhaps furloughing personnel now suggests that 3 or 4 months down the line is more reasonable than having to sack personnel later.

    “We don’t know who’s wrong or right currently. I’m not going to judge Tottenham or anybody else that does furlough staff as they’re not taking money out of anyone else’s pocket.”

    Liverpool had actually created a 25- point lead at the top of the Premier League table prior to the post ponement.
