Who were the mystery guest present at Anfield during the Derby day?
On Monday night, Anfield played home to the 242nd Merseyside Derby between Liverpool and Everton, with some notable visitors in attendance. Liverpool’s game against the Toffees helped them snap their losing streak.
Liverpool moved into ninth position in the Premier League with 32 points after defeating their fierce rivals 2-0 to gain ground on Chelsea.
For the Reds first league victory in 2023, Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo scored goals, and their special visitors undoubtedly liked the game.
Will Ferrell made an appearance at Anfield while Liverpool locked horns with Everton
Social media was filled with rumors about alleged “mystery visitors” who would attend the game at Anfield before it started. The most spectacular performance by Liverpool in months made it the perfect match to watch live since it gave the team newfound confidence as they prepared to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16 the following week.
LFC Approved, a trustworthy account for insider Liverpool info, tweeted that visitors will attend the derby.
That news interpreted this to suggest that prospective bidders would be there amid the hysteria of a potential acquisition. With no substantial progress yet, the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, have listed it for sale.
Following his visit to Wrexham, the team owned by his close friend Ryan Reynolds, Will Ferrell and his entourage took photos and talked with Liverpool players after full-time.
An update on takeover
Both Manchester United and Liverpool have been placed on the market for sale by their respective American owners. According to Alex Miller, Qatari investors are turning their focus to the Premier League and are preparing a sizable offer for Manchester United.
The Glazers, United’s owners, are asking for a valuation of £6 billion, but UEFA has forbidden them because PSG are already owned by Qatar Sports Investment. There is a problem with this since no organization is allowed to own two teams in the same league, and there may be Champions League matches between the two clubs in the future.
Even less is known about Liverpool’s future with respect to their owners. According to reports, FSG has wavered between seeking a complete purchase and a minority ownership to invest in the team. FSG are no longer competitive enough in the market for Liverpool to continue improving on the field while they are in charge, that much is obvious.
