Liverpool youngster forced to return £80,000 Range Rover after tax realisation

Date Posted,April 6, 2017

A Liverpool starlet has had the embarrassment of returning an £80,000 Range Rover after discovering huge deductions in his wage packet from the tax man.

After splashing out on the pricey motor with his first payment, the youngster was stunned upon realising the difference between gross and net pay.

Peter Fairchild, an advisor to Premier League players, explained the confusion and the motivation for making such an extravagant purchase.

“He got confused between his net and his gross income,” Fairchild said.

“[Young players] see a fleet of shiny cars at the trainng ground and don’t want to be seen in a Fiat Punto.”

Perhaps turning up to training with a Fiat Punto for a few months will drive him on to force his way into Jurgen Klopp’s first team picture.
