UEFA makes a payment of €3,536.match for each qualifier played by a player in a 12 game group, €4,307 for a 10 game group. At the tournament itself, payments are per day and start 14 days before the first match of the respective national team and finish the day after the team’s last match.
UEFA pays compensation to clubs as a result of their player’s wear and tear during the main event. Emre Can’s campaign with Germany saw him arrive late at Melwood this summer. The German RB/CM is still struggling due to lack of proper pre-season with the team.
Liverpool are currently 4th in the English Premier League and will be eyeing a Champions League return next season.
