Liverpool: Fans get excited as major sports mogul shows interest in investment

Liverpool: Fans get excited as major sports mogul shows interest in investment - Liverpool News

American sports mogul Billy Beane has reportedly shown interest in purchasing a stake in Liverpool Football Club. 

As reported by New York Post (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), the businessman is considering investing a minority sum in the club. Beane already owns a stake in Championship side Barnsley and Major League Baseball team the Oakland Athletics.

Would Billy Beane be a good investor for Liverpool?

Yes

Yes

No

No

According to the report, the 58-year-old ‘Moneyball’ mogul is looking to utilise his friendship with head of Fenway Sports Group, John W. Henry.

The current Liverpool squad is valued at a whopping £920.6million (via Transfermarkt), but business coming into the club has been quiet over the last few transfer windows. It seems Reds fans are hopeful that an investment from Beane will help boost the money FSG provide for new signings.

The owners have been subject to a lot of criticism lately, particularly over their seemingly hesitant nature to spend money in order to expand the current team. However, one supporter has replied to the news saying ‘I would love this’, whilst another believes Beane and FSG would ‘share a gold mine’ if they worked together.
