Liverpool: ‘Lots of interest’ regarding Reds takeover
Potential investors are shown ‘lots of interest’ in buying Liverpool Football Club from current owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG), according to Neil Jones for Goal.
The Lowdown: FSG selling up?
Recent reports have suggested that FSG are looking to sell Liverpool in the near future, in what is a major development at Anfield.
The American tycoons have owned the Reds since back in 2010, when they replaced despised former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett (Sky Sports).
It feels as though FSG have perhaps taken Liverpool as far as they can, though, and it is now time to see who potentially wants to oversee the next period at Anfield.
The Latest: Plenty of interest from investors
Taking to Twitter in sharing a corresponding article for Goal, Jones outlined that there are multiple interested parties in taking over at Liverpool, although a takeover won’t be happening imminently.
“Lots of interest being shown in Liverpool, says FSG partner, but still ‘early days’ in the process.”
The Verdict: Exciting new era
FSG have had both their admirers and detractors down the years, but regardless of that, it does feel as though their time in charge is reaching a natural conclusion.
Financially, they are struggling to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Newcastle United, so the hope is that any new owners can take Liverpool to the next level money-wise.
Steering clear of becoming a state-owned club must take precedence, though, with football about far more than simply being able to outspend the rest.
