Just like they have no plans to sell Liverpool Football Club right now, FSG don’t want to part with their other club (or franchise, as it’s known across the pond) Boston Red Sox.
There were suggestions the Americans would move on after 15 years at the helm of the baseball giants, but this is nothing but speculation, claims Tom Werner.
“It’s not going to be forever, but we’re very proud of what we’ve done and yet we’re hungry to continue to do better,” Werner told the Boston Herald.
“I think when I say forever, I mean, we hope to be healthy and focused for a long long time.
“But we know that nothing is forever. But this is not something we’re going to be contemplating, and hopefully we’ll be having these conversations (with media) in 10 or 15 more years.”
Under FSG’s guidance, the Red Sox have been highly more successful than Liverpool, who they bought in 2010. They’ve overseen three World Series wins, the equivalent of a Champions League, we’d say, and created the most lucrative franchise in America behind the New York Yankees. Their wage bill is also monumental.
FSG saved us from our previous American owners Hicks and Gillett, and for that, fans should be forever grateful. They’ve also expanded Anfield and brought in Jurgen Klopp – one of the world’s best managers.
There are suggestions though that we do not properly compete in the transfer market for the world’s best, and haven’t signed a readymade world-class player since Fernando Torres in 2007. This summer, that’ll be a whole ten years ago – so it’ll be very interesting to see if we acquire another. If we were gambling, we’d heavily predict Klopp will target potential stars, however, such as Julian Brandt.
