Fenway Sports Group, the owner of Liverpool Football Club has made a shocking move. They have put Liverpool for Sale.
For those concerned, this is not a new move. Rather it is something that has been contemplated by the club for a long time now. Although it didn’t go through earlier, this time they are certain about it.
FSG looking to sell off Liverpool FC
FSG in a statement published to The Athletic said, “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool.
“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.
“FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”
FSG in charge of Liverpool FC
Liverpool was bought by FSG from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks in October 2010. Since then, they have managed to win several accolades and emerged as a footballing powerhouse as well.
The best term of the club came under Jurgen Klopp under whom they won first Premier League title in 2019-20, which was also their first championship for 30 years. They also captured the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Champions League.
It was under their jurisdiction that Anfield was also transformed with a £110million Main Stand. They also moved to Kirkby as their new training facility from Melwood.
There have been no interest shown by any buyer as yet. But considering the current run of form that Liverpool has been recently there will be a lot of interested parties.
FSG already sold 11% stake in the team to RedBird Capital Partners last year. And are looking for stakes in the NHL ice hockey team Pittsburgh Penguins.
