Despite the Liverpool owners “exploring a sale,” FSG founder Tom Werner believes there is “no hurry.”
Werner and John W. Henry were a part of the group that acquired the Boston Red Sox in 2001 and later took the name Fenway Sports Group.
Henry, Werner, and their partners, including FSG president Mike Gordon, have owned Liverpool since 2010. They are looking for investment in the team and a possible outright sale.
Sam Kennedy told the Boston Globe in a quotation from Thursday that there had been “a lot of interest” in the team.
Werner has provided an update via the same source Henry owns. And he is the most well-known person to do so since the news broke on November 7.
FSG & CEO provides an update on Liverpool sale
Werner told the Globe about exploring the sale. He did say there is no urgency or time frame. And it is more of a business thing. One outcome could be FSG’s continued stewardship
This holds true in light of the numerous rumors regarding FSG’s selling intentions. It was reaffirmed that the company would adhere to its valuation – over £3 billion – and would only do business with the appropriate partner.
In terms of Liverpool‘s medium-term prospects. And precisely the transfer market, Werner’s conviction that everything is “business as usual” is favorable.
Jurgen Klopp himself mentioned the lack of clarity surrounding the club’s ownership. And it appears that his assertion is now supported.
Many names have come up to take over the Reds, including Arabs and prominent billionaires. And it will be exciting to see who comes to take the Anfield throne. Liverpool fans are also happy to see a change. Many of them were fed up with FSG’s lack of financial backing, which they feel is the reason for their poor start to the season.
