Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has confessed they were wrong to initially furlough staff via a government scheme as the coronavirus crisis hit.

Fenway Sports Group, the Liverpool owners, faced fierce criticism at the beginning of April when they revealed they would take advantage of the Government scheme paying 80 per cent of wages up to £2,500 a month.

The furious backlash from fans and former players led FSG to reverse their decision within 48 hours, reminiscent of when they changed their stance on raising ticket prices to as much as £77 — which led to a mass walkout at Anfield in February 2016.

"It's better to admit a mistake than to dig your heels in," Werner said.

"Hopefully people will know that all we really care about is trying to support the fans and support our players and our club in a way that is sustainable."
