Payments in similar European leagues
Manchester City may be the most generous employer in the EPL at this point but they don’t hold this title at the European level. Juventus, in Italy’s Serie-A for example, pay their players an average of 10.1 million U.S. dollars. This slightly higher amount comes in spite of the facts that the EPL generates revenue of more than twice as much as the Serie A overall.
Money reflects fandom
Manchester United holds the record for most EPL championships won and with such success comes a large fanbase. When asked ”Which club is your favourite Premier League club?”, 22.6 percent of English stated Manchester United, followed by 16.4 percent naming Liverpool Football Club.
