Liverpool: Fans are raging as reason for failed Timo Werner move comes to light

Liverpool: Fans are raging as reason for failed Timo Werner move comes to light - Liverpool Transfer Rumours

It appears that light has been shed on the reason behind Liverpool’s failed move for recent Chelsea signing Timo Werner. 

The Reds looked certain to be the ones to welcome the German talent over the threshold, but a shock change of direction saw him end up at Stamford Bridge instead.

Can Liverpool win the Premier League again this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Now, according to Paul Gorst from his recent Q&A session (relayed via @AnfieldEdition), it appears Fenway Sports Group pulled the plug after a controversial decision to place staff on government furlough.

During the UK lockdown, Liverpool announced they would be utilising the government scheme to pay their non-playing workers. The club quickly made a U-turn on this decision, but the backlash apparently played a huge part in why a move for Werner was not pursued.

A large amount of Reds fans are furious over this revelation and feel it’s a poor explanation for why FSG allowed the highly-speculated move to slip through the net.

How many points did Liverpool finish the 2019/20 season on?

One supporter has replied saying it’s a ‘disgrace’ whilst another has branded FSG as ‘joke owners’. One Kopite has commented that they simply ‘have no words’ on the matter.
