Manchester United earned the lowest prize money from all the English clubs that featured in last season’s Champions League.
This is according to the financial figures released by European football’s governing body, UEFA.
A total of €1.4b was paid out to participating teams from the 2017/18 Champions League season and Manchester United received the least amount out of all the five English clubs.
Apart from Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur featured prominently in the Champions League last season.
All the five English clubs qualified for the knockout stage last season, which is a Champions League record for the number of teams from the same country/league.
Liverpool had an impressive campaign following their run to the final in Kyiv before they were beaten 3 – 1 by champions Real Madrid.
The Reds rightfully got the most money as they were paid €81.2 million (around £71.8m) ahead of Chelsea who received €65.2m.
Premier League champions Manchester City were knocked out by the Reds at the quarterfinal stage and they received €63.8m.
North London giants Tottenham Hotspur were paid €61.3m ahead of Manchester United who earned €40.3m only.
The Red Devils were surprisingly knocked out by Spanish side Sevilla in the round of 16 via a 2-1 aggregate loss.
