Liverpool: Fans rejoice as club value shoots up to £1.7bn

Liverpool fans have reacted with glee as the club’s value has shot up to £1.7bn, according to reports.

The Merseyside club were taken over in 2010 by the Fenway Sports Group (FSG), led by Tom Werner and John W Henry, the owner of the American baseball team the Boston Red Sox.

This came after disastrous leadership by the previous owners John Hicks and George Gillett, which almost led the club to liquidation in 2010.

FSG bought the club for £300m and, nine years on from that faithful day, Forbes Magazine (via Tribal Football) revealed that the club is now worth an eye-watering £1.7bn.

The club has since gone on to earn a record 97 points in the league and reach back-to-back Champions League finals, one of which they beat Tottenham 2-0 in Madrid to secure their sixth European crown.
