Former players Jamie Carragher and Stan Collymore turned on Liverpool after the Premier League leaders became the fifth top-flight club to announce they have furloughed some non-playing staff during the coronavirus pandemic.The PA news agency understands around 200 staff, whose work is effectively idle during the Premier League suspension, have been affected by the decision.Liverpool, who in February announced pre-tax profits of 42million for 2018-19, will top up the public money received from the government to ensure the affected staff receive their full salaries.#LFC is continuing to deal with a range of challenges caused by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and would like to update supporters on the progress that has been made to date. Liverpool FC (at ) (@LFC) April 4, 2020Liverpool are following Tottenham, Newcastle, Bournemouth and Norwich in turning to the governments job retention scheme during the suspension of the Premier League, a decision which impressed neither Carragher nor Collymore.Carragher retweeted the clubs statement and wrote: Jurgen Klopp showed compassion for all at the start of this pandemic, senior players heavily involved in @premierleague players taking wage cuts. Then all that respect goodwill is lost, poor this @LFCCollymore was even more forthright as he wrote: I dont know of any Liverpool fan of any standing that wont be anything other than disgusted at the club for furloghing staff.Jurgen Klopp showed compassion for all at the start of this pandemic, senior players heavily involved in @premierleague players taking wage cuts.
