Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a Daily Mail article from Dominic King in which he hammered the club’s decision to place some non-playing staff on furlough.

He wrote that “the goodwill that Liverpool had built up over the last 18 months has been shredded by this step” and claimed that there would be no sympathy for the Reds if the Premier League season is cancelled and they are denied the chance to win a first league title in 30 years (as per Daily Mail), prompting numerous Liverpool supporters to respond by saying that they wouldn’t receive any sympathy or goodwill anyway.

King slammed the decision from FSG to go along with the government’s furlough scheme and temporarily lay off some staff as “dreadful“, with numerous Reds supporters and Jamie Carragher also critical of the club’s owners over that course of action.

On the day that the Premier League season was initially halted last month due to the coronavirus pandemic, a number of Manchester United fans on social media were gleeful at the prospect of Liverpool being deprived of the title should the campaign be declared null and void if it cannot be completed at a later date.

Here are some of the responses from Liverpool fans to what King wrote, following a tweet from @AnfieldWatch:
