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.
According to Forbes, Liverpool Football Club now valued at £1.7 Billion. FSG bought the club for £300 Million.
