Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp welcomes decision by Fenway Group

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has welcomed the decision by Fenway Sports Group to look for new investors. Although FSG would like to draw in new investors by selling a minority part, the company is rumored to be considering selling the club it purchased for roughly £300 million in October 2010. The American owners of Liverpool have requested Morgan Stanley and Goldmann Sachs to assess investor interest, and the banks are anticipated to find out whether some of the shortlisted bidders who were unsuccessful in acquiring Chelsea are interested in investing in the Merseyside club. When asked if FSG plans to sell Liverpool, Klopp declined to comment, but he did reiterate his commitment to the team regardless of any changes to the club’s ownership structure.

“Everyone claimed Liverpool owner John W. Henry wanted to sell the team, but from what I’ve read, we are actually seeking investors. I agree that makes sense,” Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said. “It means nothing to me. Even though I genuinely enjoy working with our owners, I’m devoted to the club no matter what happens. I believe that we are searching for investors, therefore that makes sense. For me, it’s crucial that we continue moving forward and making plans while this process is taking place.”

Tom Werner, the chairman of FSG, and John W Henry jointly own the majority of Liverpool. Although FSG acknowledges that it is willing to consider new investors, it hasn’t said the club is for sale as a whole, yet it hasn’t ruled it out either.
