Liverpool fans are sick of the word ‘specualtion’, but for this writing it is basically ‘speculation’, but just wanted to share with you all what I have heard.
A Liverpool fan page, similar to Empire Of The Kop, yesterday published news as to why Rafa Benitez was axed or asked to leave.
The creator of the website claimed that the reason why Rafa’s depature happened was because of a potential take over of the club. He claims his name is Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who is the brother of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who owns Manchester City, meaning if the take over does happen, Liverpool would be up there with City and Chelsea financially.
Apparently negotiations between himsefl and Christian Purlow are under way, and the deal is now down to the owners accepting the deal, which is expected to happen within the next 5 weeks, regarding the owners’ acceptance.
The guy who publsihed this says its come from a source who are normally right and very relaible. I don’t think its right for me to reveal which fans page I got this from.
Personally, its a case of ‘I’ll believe it when I see it”, I just wanted to let you all know as its expected for this news to filter through to the press in the next few days. Its not a done deal, so don’t get too ecxited.
