John Henry rules out selling Liverpool in FSG’s latest plans for the club

Liverpool sale plans

FSG were linked with a possible sale of the club.

Liverpool owner John Henry has broken his silence and confirmed that the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), will not be selling the club.

Last November it was reported that FSG had put the club up for sale and had produced a full presentation for any interested parties.

In a response to the rumours, FSG released a statement saying that they would “consider new shareholders” provided “it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club”, but were still “fully committed” to the club.

A number of consortiums and relevant parties from around the world were then linked with taking the reins at Anfield but an update from The Athletic has revealed that interest has been minimal and FSG are yet to receive any bids.

It now seems more likely that any sale will only be a minority – as opposed to majority – stake and Henry himself has ruled out an outright sale of the Reds.


The 73-year-old rarely speaks publicly but during a Q&A session with the Boston Red Sox, Henry was asked by Boston Sports Journal writer Sean McAdam if they were still planning to sell.

“I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC (Liverpool Football Club), but I keep to the facts: we merely formalised an ongoing process,” he explained.

“Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20+ years?”

Fans of the Reds have long been at war with their owners. From ticket prices to a lack of investment on the pitch, patience has worn thin however under FSG’s guide they were able to win their first league title in 30 years and were responsible for bringing Jürgen Klopp to the club.

FSG have also helped to significantly develop Anfield and are continuing to do so.
