The Athletic reported that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has put Liverpool up for sale and a full sales presentation has been produced for interested parties.
FSG bought Liverpool in October of 2010 and have since helped the club win a league title and the Champions League.
A statement from FSG read: “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool.
“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.
“FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”
Now, on January 18th, The Athletic have reported that Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are increasingly likely to sell a minority stake in the club rather than sanction a full takeover.
This has caused something of a mixed reaction online, with some fans hopeful of getting rid of FSG for someone who will invest more money in the team.
