Liverpool’s owner hints at “spending wisely” after struggling season
The FSG released a statement in November, revealing their intention of selling the club. Despite changing their minds recently, they’ll be discussing investment opportunities with several potential parties.
After taking control of the club in 2010, Fenway Sports Group announced in November that the company intends to sell the club and is looking for potential buyers. Liverpool’s owner John Henry has set the record straight, revealing that the Fenway Sports Group no longer wants to sell Liverpool. However, he confirmed that FSG is seeking a third party to add to its investment.
Henry told theLiverpool Echo
: "While we formalised a process that has identified potential investors for the club, we remain fully committed to the long-term success of the club.
"That has been the case since day one in 2010. Our efforts every day have been and continue to be focused on the long-term health and competitiveness of the club.
"Investment in the club is never for the short-term. This approach has been successful over the long haul with patience necessary from time to time.
"In regard to Liverpool Football Club our commitment remains stronger than ever. The club continues to make great progress with youth on the field and off."
During their ownership, Liverpool has won eight trophies, including the Premier League and Champions League. However, they are struggling this season with the ownership being criticized over several issues. However, Henry hinted there will not be a mega spending spree in the next transfer window.
"We continue building at Liverpool Football Club in a responsible manner," he said. "We've seen many football clubs go down unsustainable paths.
"We have and will continue to focus our attention on investing wisely in the transfer market and we remain incredibly proud of our squad.
"At the same time, we continue investing in our training facilities, our main stand and currently the Anfield Road stand.
"These are all physical reflections of our resolve and how very seriously Fenway Sports Group takes its responsibilities for this great club."
