Reds are not unofficially on the market…
Liverpool are not on the market for prospective buyers, and the owners have no intention of selling the club, according to The Guardian.
In a statement released to Press Association Sport, a club spokesman said: “Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has made its position clear, Liverpool Football Club is not for sale. There is no truth in this story.”
An FSG spokesman confirmed these claims: “Like so many rumours in the past about a sale of Liverpool Football Club, there is absolutely no truth in this. We have had no meetings with anyone about a sale, we don’t know who the source of the rumour is, and any suggestion of a sale is fabrication.”
The Sun claimed yesterday that the club was unofficially on the market, but these rumours have been quashed immediately. FSG has bought stability to Liverpool following their purchase of the club in 2010 from fellow American’s Tom Hicks and George Gillette. They have spent large sums on Luis Suarez, Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing, and made Andy Carroll the record British signing in January 2011, butt he team has not played Champions League football since their arrival however.
Brendan Rodgers will be desperate to finish in the top four this season to achieve this target. FSG have continually supported their Northern Irish manager, after previously dismissing Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish after their equally poor Premier League performances.
Fans will hope FSG back up their commitment to the cause with at least one more significant transfer deal this window. Rodgers wants to purchase exciting first-team players from now on, but no significant deal is thought to be close, after the club missed out on £25m Henrikh Mkhitaryan earlier in the summer.
