Red’s boss Jurgen Klopp says he’ll stay even if owners change

Jurgen Klopp insists he is devoted to the Anfield project and hierarchy despite rumours of an interest in new investors.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that any change in ownership will not affect his commitment to the Anfield club and has downplayed talk of a sale after owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) announced they would consider new shareholders.

FSG, which completed the takeover of Liverpool for £300 million ($342.06m) in 2010, earlier this week responded to reports of a sale by saying they would look into bringing in investors if it was in Liverpool’s “best interests.”

“Whatever happens, I really like how we work together with our owners but if that would change I’m committed to the club, obviously,” Klopp told reporters after Liverpool beat Derby County on penalties in the League Cup.

“As far as I know, they are looking for investors and I thought that makes sense.”

Chelsea was sold earlier this year to an investment group led by Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital following government sanctions imposed on Russian Roman Abramovich, but Klopp stated that the circumstances surrounding Liverpool were different.

“They [FSG] are looking for investors,” Klopp added. “The situation is completely different: Chelsea had to get sold because their owner was in trouble.”
