FSG have helped put Liverpool right at the top of European football.
Since they took over in 2010, the Reds have eventually become the best team in England as they top the Premier League by a huge 25 points, whilst they are also a force to be reckoned with in Europe – they have reached the last two Champions League finals, winning one. Not only that, they have completed some stunning business with the signings of the likes of Alisson and Mohamed Salah.
However, according to Graeme Souness on Sky Sports (via The Daily Mirror), things could have been so much different. He said that Manchester City’s owner, Sheikh Mansour, tried to purchase the Reds before completing the takeover of the Citizens.
Who would you rather have as owners?
Despite all of their recent success, it seems that plenty of the Anfield outfit’s supporters are disappointed that they were not bought by the Middle East businessman. They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
We’d have won every league since if they bought us, with Liverpool name, draw and their wealth, in fairness we’d have destroyed the league with our dominance https://t.co/GZQa8qRjbt
