Liverpool respond to suggestions the club is up for sale

Liverpool responds to rumours

Liverpool football club have responded to suggestions that the Reds have been quietly placed on the market and are up for sale.

The reports emerged on Friday when it was suggested that John Henry had put the club up for sale privately.

It was claimed that while the sale was not a priority, Fenway Sports Group would listen to offers north of $2 billion.

That came as a shock to Liverpool fans considering the owners stern stance in the past.

Back in August, FSG commented on other speculation that the club was up for sale.

“FSG have been clear and consistent: the club is not for sale,” they explained, as quoted by the Guardian.

“But what the ownership has said, again clearly and consistently, is that under the right terms and conditions we would consider taking on a minority investor, if such a partnership was to further our commercial interests in specific market places and in line with the continued development and growth of the club and the team.”

“To repeat once again, the club is not for sale”

Now, Liverpool have been forced to respond to sale rumours again and have labelled them ‘unfounded speculation.’

“As loath as we are to give a story of this nature a meaningful response, on behalf of the club’s ownership I can completely dismiss this unfounded speculation,” the statement read, as cited by the Liverpool Echo. 

“To repeat once again, the club is not for sale, including any ‘quiet process’ or anything of that nature.”

Safe to say, they have put those rumours to bed.
