The Fenway Group confirms its “commitment” to Liverpool amid rumors about the sale of the club

LONDON: Fenway Sports Group, the parent company of Liverpool Football Club, has confirmed that it is “fully committed” to Liverpool’s success, amid rumors about putting in sale of the club. And a news bulletin on Monday claimed that the US-based Fenway Group had put up in sale on club and that the investment banks “Goldman Sachs” and “Morgan Stanley” were participating in the valuation process. Although the Fenway Group has admitted to accepting new shareholders, it has not gone so far as to say that the club it is entirely in sale, according to British news agency BA Media. And the group stated in a statement: “There have been several changes in ownership recently and rumors have recently been raised about changes in ownership of the club of the Premier League, and therefore we often get questions about the ownership of the Fenway Sports Group in Liverpool. “He added:” The Fenway Sports Group has repeatedly received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to contribute to Liverpool. “He continued:” The Fenway Group has said before it could take in considering the entry of new shareholders, under the correct terms and conditions, and whether this is in Liverpool FC’s interest. “” Fenway Sports Group remains fully committed to Liverpool’s success, both on and off the pitch, “he said the group in a note. The Fenway Group, formerly called New England Sports Ventures, acquired Liverpool for £ 300 million ($ 343.69 million) in 2010, after the club it was on the verge of receivership due to a management malfunction under Tom Hicks and George Gillette, its previous owners. The “Forbes” company currently values ​​the club at around £ 3.5 billion and the purchase of the club looks more tempting to foreign investors now in light of the pound’s decline in strength. (Dpa)
