Liverpool owner John Henry rules out club sale

Liverpool’s owner, John Henry, recently said there are no plans to sell the PL club after The Reds owners said in November they were considering a sale. 

Fenway Sports Group (FSG), which completed a takeover of the club in 2010 at £300 million ($358m), said in November they would explore the option of onboarding investors if it was in the “best interest” of the club. 

Following FSG’ initial statement, Liverpool chairman Tom Werner said there was no urgency to complete any potential deal

According to a Boston Sports Journal interview published on Sunday, Henry was quoted saying "I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about Liverpool, but I keep to the facts: We merely formalized an ongoing process.

"Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling Liverpool? No. Are we talking with investors about Liverpool? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won't be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20-plus years?"

It was earlier reported that FSG has enlisted investment banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to help in the process of finding a potential buyer. 

Club’s rivals Manchester United, owned by the Glazer family of the US are also looking for a sale, with confirmed bids from British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS and Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani, a son of Qatar’s former Prime Minister.
