BARCELONA: Barcelona paid out €92 million in collective bonuses to its players for winning the Spanish league and Super Cup titles last season, the club’s annual report showed.

The report revealed that the club spent a total of €541 million on staff costs across all its sports teams, with €311.9 million spent on first team coaches and players.

While Barca won La Liga at a canter and lifted the Super Cup last season, they lost the Copa del Rey final to Valencia and were beaten by Liverpool in the Champions League semi-finals.

They handed out €94 million for the 2017-2018 season, when they won the Copa del Rey and La Liga titles.
