Liver­pool ‘com­pletely dis­miss’ re­ports club is for sale

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Liver­pool have “com­pletely dis­missed” re­ports that owner John W Henry is open to sell­ing the club. Re­ports yes­ter­day claimed that Henry and his Fen­way Sports Group were pri­vately con­sid­er­ing of­fers for the Mersey­side out­fit and would be will­ing to sell should they re­ceive a bid of $2bn (£1.54bn) or more.

How­ever, the club have now re­leased an of­fi­cial state­ment in­sist­ing that there is no truth to the ru­mours.

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

Henry pur­chased Liver­pool in 2010 for a re­ported fee of £366m.
