Saudi Arabian government speak out on potential Liverpool takeover

A potential Liverpool buyer has been discussing the club.


In one of the most shocking stories of the month, Liverpool FC has been put up for sale.

The Athletic reported earlier this month 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.

Now, the Saudi Arabian government have been discussing a potential takeover of the Reds.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal said that there was a lot of “interest and appetite” in the Liverpool and Manchester United, both of which have seen their owners open themselves up to either part investment or a full sale over the past two weeks.

He told BBC Sport: “From the private sector, I can’t speak on their behalf, but there is a lot of interest and appetite and there’s a lot of passion about football.

“It’s the most-watched league in Saudi and the region and you have a lot of fans of the Premier League.

“We will definitely support it if any [Saudi] private sector comes in, because we know that’s going to reflect positively on sports within the kingdom.

“But if there’s an investor willing to do so and the numbers add up, why not?”
