Liverpool Owners, Fenway Sports Group, Put The Club Up For Sale

Liverpool owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG) have put the Premier League club up for sale. The owners have already put together, a full presentation for interested parties.

The club’s top brass have retained Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to assist with the process of selling the club.

Whilst it is inviting offers, it is unclear the level of interest and whether a deal is likely to be done.

Mirror Football reported in April last year that FSG had rejected an offer of almost £3billion from the Middle East.

Premier League rivals, Chelsea were recently taken over by the Todd Boehly-led US consortium for a cost of £4.25billion, a new record in the sport.

A statement from Fenway Sports Group to The Athletic 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.”

FSG is principally owned by John W. Henry, who was one of the two founders alongside Chairman Tom Werner.

The group sold an 11% stake to RedBird Capital Partners last year for $750 million (£655 million). RedBird recently became majority owners of Italian champions AC Milan too.
