Jamie Carragher praised Liverpool for reversing its decision to remove the non-player staff, prompting a group of Tottenham supporters to urge their club to do the same.
Monday night Liverpool flip-flopped on decision to use government leave plan as chief executive Peter Moore admitted that they had come to the “wrong conclusion”.
Former Liverpool captain Carragher was among those who criticized Saturday’s decision, but said on Twitter after the last update: “Well done @PeterMooreLFC @LFC a big mistake at the start and luckily now it has been fixed. “
My schedule seems more angry now that the LFC has changed its mind on vacation payments than when it did! They made a mistake, the fans were very vocal and the club reversed it with pressure, shame or common sense.
Go find the clubs that haven’t changed their tactics !!

Liverpool’s rivals, Manchester United, have told their employees that they will not use the government licensing scheme, with around 900 full-time employees expected to be paid as if they were working normally.
But all those who cannot work from home or those with reduced workloads were strongly encouraged to devote time to the NHS or their local communities.
The Liverpool decision prompted the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters ’Trust to urge their club to do the same.
A brief statement on Twitter said, “We always said @SpursOfficial – take a break and rethink. We now say it clearly and in public – don’t harm the Club’s reputation any more, listen to your fans. “
