FSG Owner Henry won’t sell LFC

Owner of the Premier League team Liverpool, John Henry, claims he is not selling, although he does anticipate some investment.

In November, Henry’s Fenway Sports Group (FSG), which acquired Liverpool in 2010 and declared it “would consider additional shareholders” in the Reds, stated as much.

Later, FSG Chairman Tom Werner stated that the club’s owners were “exploring a sale,” but they may continue their “stewardship for quite a while.”

“Do we market LFC? No, “the Boston Sports Journal, according to Henry.

“Talking about LFC with investors? Yes. Will anything transpire there? Though it won’t result in a sale, I think so.”

The American was participating in a question-and-answer exchange that was happening by email.

FSG has been interested in investing in Liverpool for a while, and just recently enlisted the help of Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs.

We just formalized an ongoing procedure, Henry said. “I realize there has been a lot of discussion and quotes about LFC, but I keep to the facts,” Henry said.

Prior to Tuesday’s first leg of Liverpool’s Champions League match against Real Madrid at Anfield, his remarks were made public.

After winning their last two games, the Reds enter the encounter ranked seventh in the Premier League.

Following the divisive ownership of former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett, FSG acquired Liverpool in a £300 million deal.

LeBron James, an American basketball player, purchased a 2% stake in Liverpool for £4.7 million in 2011. He has been a part owner of Liverpool since 2011.

At that time, he has grown to be a small partner in FSG, which also owns the baseball team Boston Red Sox.

RedBird Capital Partners, a private investment company, acquired a share in FSG in March 2021 for roughly $735 million (£533 million).
