Liverpool put on a performance of particular merit on Saturday, downing Premier League champions Leicester City 4-1 in front of the New Main Stand.
The ownership had flown over from stateside for the match, and Jurgen Klopp’s men didn’t disappoint – producing some scintillating football during the convincing home victory.
According to the Echo, FSG honcho John W. Henry felt the need to personally congratulate the side in the changing rooms.
“That was some football, hey,” he said, before letting the manager and the players revel in their victory and performance.
His wife Linda Pizzuti had more to say, and posted this image on Twitter following the match.

FSG were criticised over the summer by some for not spending money, but this was purely Klopp’s decision – not the owners withholding funds.
The boss got everything he wanted, and his side now get to play in front of 54,000 people – purely because of FSG’s work.
When you consider the Americans who owned our club beforehand, supporters should reconsider before venting at the current ones. All in all, they’ve done a pretty good job, and expertly awarded the boss a six year contract extension in the summer as well.
