Despite rumours this morning from the New York Post that owners FSG were ‘privately entertaining’ offers of $2 billion for Liverpool’s sale, the speculation has been rubbished by the club, via a recent report from ESPN.
“As loathed as we are to give a story of this nature a meaningful response on behalf of the club’s ownership I can completely dismiss this unfounded speculation,” a spokesperson for Liverpool said in an official club statement.
“To repeat once again, the club is not for sale, including any ‘quiet process’ or anything of that nature.”
Despite earning criticism throughout their regime, having supported the expansion of Anfield, the development of training facilities and offered Jurgen Klopp significant financial backing in the transfer market, it’s difficult to find any qualms with FSG’s ownership at the moment.
Although pursuing minority investment remains a possibility, the nature of the statement reiterates that there is no chance that FSG will sell any time soon.
