Thursday’s meeting of the Premier League clubs will discuss multiple issues regarding the live coverage of the remaining games.
Premier League fans who will be watching the games from their homes will be given the option of hearing fake crowd noise when the English top-flight returns later this month.
Mirror Football reports that Sky are considering giving the armchair viewers the option to listen to crowd noise as they watch their favorite team in action. The English broadcaster might show the game on two channels, one of which will give the option of noise and the other won’t.
BT, the other major broadcaster of the Premier League matches in England, might also exercise the option to do something similar after it received a positive response of its experiment of airing fake crowd noise during last week’s game between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
This issue among others will be on the agenda when representatives from 20 top-flight clubs will reconvene for a meeting on Thursday. It will also be discussed whether the clubs should give the broadcasters access to their dressing rooms and half-time interviews.
The respectable journalist adds that Jurgen Klopp’s side made a huge loan offer for the 23-year-old with an option to buy him at the end of his loan term. Dembele, however, was unmoved as he is still confident of turning his career around at the Camp Nou.
Dembele has been the victim of multiple injuries since his €100m+ move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017. The 23-year-old has succumbed to 8 injuries in total during his time in Spain, missing a massive 58 games in total.
His hamstring troubles have been the most troublesome for Dembele as they have kept him out of action for 259 days. The winger has spent almost a month on the treatment table due to various muscle injuries, with an ankle injury sidelining him for 18 days.
With millions of their fans spending the majority of their time at home, football stars have kept them entertained through their social media posts.
Cristiano Ronaldo amassed a massive £1.9million from paid Instagram posts during the coronavirus lockdown, with Lionel Messi the second highest-paid athlete as the Barcelona and Argentina superstar took home almost £1.3million from paid social media posts.
Brazil and PSG forward Neymar wasn’t far behind his former Barcelona teammate as the 27-year-old raked in £1.2 million by sharing his whereabouts with his 138,000,000 followers. The next footballer on the list is David Beckham, who made £400,000+ from his three sponsored posts.
The next two footballers to complete the list of top 10 earners from Instagram include Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Dani Alves. The Swede has made 2 sponsored posts so far during the lockdown and has earned an estimated £92,206 for each.
Dani Alves might have left the top European leagues but his popularity still holds strong as the former PSG and Barcelona full-back took home £66,000 from his 2 sponsored posts. These figures, which are collected by Attain, are for the 2-month period between March 12 and May 14.
