FSG have said they remain ‘fully committed’

Fenway Sports Group have said they remain “fully committed” to Liverpool despite reports claiming they have put the club up for sale.

Reports emerged on Monday that FSG were looking to move the club on to new owners after 12 years in charge at Anfield.

However the majority owners of the Reds have responded to the speculation. A statement from the group said: “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’s ownership has been a mixed bag since they bought the club in 2010. Responsible for appointing manager Jürgen Klopp in 2015, the Reds have won the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Champions League and ended a 30-year wait to lift the Premier League.

The club have also seen major developments away from the pitch, including a new main stand which cost in the region of £110m as well as current work on the Anfield Road stand which will boost the capacity of Anfield to 61,000.

Despite many positives there have also been negatives to their ownership. In 2019, they reversed a decision to trademark the name Liverpool, with supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly campaigning against the move.

They were also one of the founding members of the failed European Super League project before withdrawing and apologising to supporters.
