Plenty of Liverpool fans have grudgingly agreed with Piers Morgan’s strong condemnation of the club’s owners FSG over their decision to furlough non-playing staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Saturday, Liverpool FC announced in a club statement that they would take up the government’s job retention scheme by placing some employees on temporary leave, a decision which met with opposition from some Reds fans, the Spirit of Shankly supporters’ union and Jamie Carragher.

Morgan slammed FSG on social media over the weekend about the furloughing of some staff and, speaking on Good Morning Britain today, he again hit out at Liverpool’s owners, saying: “What an astonishingly stupid decision from Liverpool Football Club”. A clip of his latest comments was shared on Twitter by @AnfieldWatch.
