Liverpool FC want own TV rights, says Ayre

Liverpool's managing director, Ian Ayre has said that the club is interested in negotiated their own overseas television rights deal and moving away from the existing Premier League agreement.

The 20 Premier League teams currently command a deal worth £3.2bn for their broadcast rights Outside of the UK.

Liverpool are not happy at having to share that income equally with smaller clubs when they could earn more from selling their non-UK rights individually.

The club claim they risk being left behind by the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid who already sell their own overseas rights.
