Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool owners, respond to the rumored Qatari takeover

Liverpool owners, Fenway Sports Group, have reportedly denied reports that the club is about to be taken over by Qatari investors.

After owning the club for 13 years, FSG announced in November that they were looking for new investors.

In 2010, FSG paid just £300 million for Liverpool. Under their ownership, the Reds have won the Champions League, Club World Cup, FA Cup, two Carabao Cups, and their first Premier League title.

According to recent reports, Qatari investors have emerged as the top contenders to acquire the club. However, no discussions have advanced, and FSG’s current preference is to sell a small portion of the club rather than sanction a full takeover, according to The Athletic. However, nothing is on the horizon in that regard.

Since last autumn, US banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have been courting the Reds, who are said to be worth more than £3 billion. However, FSG has yet to receive any suitably appealing proposals.

“There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool,” read a statement from FSG in November”.

“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club. FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”
