After being the club’s principal shirt sponsor since 2010, their £40 million-a-year arrangement with Standard Chartered is due to expire at the end of the season. Liverpool is now searching for a deal worth more than £40 million per season, and the company is considering “channeling its resources elsewhere.”
There’s an update that says “discussions about extending their cooperation are still ongoing,” but the Reds are also “talking to corporations from areas such as electronics, media, and tourism.”

We encouraged Trent (Alexander-Arnold) to play from a deeper position, and we wanted Fab (Fabinho) to play on that side as well, so we understood where the threat was coming from, but we couldn’t always protect it in the first place.
“You can’t win a football game if you don’t take risks in football.” It was evident that we could improve from the first half, and we did, which is why everything turned out well.
