FSG has come up with a new statement regarding the potential takeover of Liverpool Football club.

The Fenway Sports Group is looking for new Liverpool shareholders. Furthermore, they haven’t completely ruled out the possibility of selling the team outright.

Moreover, the American group has hired major banks, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. It is headed by the principal owner John W Henry, to analyze the state of the market.

Early in November, when rumours of a possible sale initially surfaced, FSG sent the ECHO the following statement:

FSG’s latest statement and Ambani denies Liverpool takeover

“There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL club. 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. WE remain fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”

According to The Mirror, Mukesh Ambani was keen on buying Liverpool. According to Forbes, the Indian businessman has an estimated net worth of $90.7 billion, making him the tenth richest person in the world.

However, when FSG acquired Liverpool in 2010, Ambani was considering a takeover. According to rumors, Ambani and Subrata Roy were prepared to settle the club’s £237 million debt in exchange for a 51% ownership stake.

Reliance Industries, owned by Anil Ambani, said in a statement to the Indian media site ABP Live that rumors about a possible takeover of Liverpool were “false.”

Moreover, The Athletic claims that it is doubtful that Ambani would buy Liverpool. Furthermore, the family’s son, Akash Ambani, is reportedly an Arsenal supporter. Moreover, the Ambani family would only be interested in the Gunners if they were to play English football. This is because they formed the Indian Super League and are the owners of Mumbai Indians, an IPL cricket franchise.
