Southampton will receive around £ 2.5 million in bonuses for Liverpool’s first English Premier League victory, reports The Telegraph.
The fact is that 4 former players of the “Saints” play in the training of champions of Jürgen Klopp. And with the Reds’ victory in the championship, points in the contracts of Virgil van Dyck, Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren for the sums of compensation for the transfers of these players to Anfield were automatically activated.

Note that there is another football player in the Liverpool championship team who is a “product” of the club with Saint Mary – this is midfielder Alex Oxland-Chamberlain, but the transfer of the Englishman 26 year old Anfield made of Arsenal.
We add that the Merseyside Club victory was the first in the history of the Premier League. The Reds celebrated their success 7 rounds before arrival, which previously none of the Premier League clubs had succeeded.
