Fenway Sports Group Has Put Liverpool F.C. Up for Sale

The owners of Liverpool F.C. have said that they are open to offers, implying that the club is now up for sale.

The Fenway Sports Group (FSG), which also owns the Boston Red Sox, acquired Liverpool in 2010, with the club then going on to win the Premier League in 2019-20 and the Champions League in 2019. In a statement, FSG said: There have been a number of recent changes and rumors 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 is in the best interests of Liverpool as a club. FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch."

Currently, Liverpool is principally owned by John W Henry, alongside FSG chairman Tom Werner and it is understood that the banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley will help with the sale process if an offer is accepted.

The statement has also come as a shock to the footballing world, with the club experiencing great success since the club's owners appointed its current manager Jurgen Klopp in 2015. Liverpool's ground, Anfield, also recently had a new £110m Main Stand constructed, and work on the £80m Anfield Road Stand is due to finish next summer, taking the ground's capacity to 61,000.
