Tom Werner has reiterated that Liverpool FC is not for sale.
There have been endless rumours in the last six about investments and minority stakes, but the chairman as once again stressed that FSG will not be relinquishing majority control of the club.
“I have said repeatedly this club is not for sale,” Werner said.
“I don’t know how many more times I can say it. I am saying it today and I am emphatic about it and that is all I can say.” (Echo)
According to the Echo, he even moved to dismiss suggestions that a Chinese group were planning a £1 billion takeover bid.
FSG saved the club from the brink of administration when they wrestled control from Amercian cowboys Tom Hicks and George Gillett after a lengthy court battle.
Werner now insists that he and his firm are looking to the future, saying the newly redeveloped stand will help the club compete for silverware at the highest level.
“We recognised this was a challenge not just for us but our fans and for us to compete at the highest level we needed to come up with a stadium solution,” he said.
It has been almost 20 years since thoughts about expanding the Main Stand were first discussed. There is still no word on when or if the Anfield Road end will be done, but the club do have planning permission.
