The current owners of Liverpool, Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have stated that they have no intention of selling the club.
The US Sports Company bought Liverpool in 2010 from George Gillett and Tom Hicks, and have since seen the value of their investment rocket, as the club has begun to compete for top honours under the stewardship of Jurgen Klopp.
That has prompted some speculation that FSG – who also own the Boston Red Sox and the Foush Fenway NASCAR racing team – might be tempted to cash in on their investment in the Anfield side.
However, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has now issued a firm denial saying “Every time those rumours come up we bat them down. I hope people now know that we are focused on continuing the progress of this club.
“We have no intention of selling.”
On the pitch, Liverpool clinched a sixth Champions League on Saturday night when they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 0 in an all-Premier League clash. Mo Salah from the penalty spot and substitute Divock Origi got the vital goals that secured the trophy for Klopp’s men.
