Liverpool’s principal owner John W. Henry, took to Twitter to rubbish claims that the club will be bought out in the next week or so.
As far as using Twitter to express his feelings, John W. Henry is right up there with Donald Trump. The American once used the social media platform to communicate his irritation with Arsenal Football Club over their insulting £40 million and £1 bid for Luis Suarez.
On Wednesday, however, Henry used Twitter to cast aside assertions amid reports that a Chinese consortium were preparing a bid to buy Liverpool Football Club. There have been rumours regarding Liverpool’s ownership for over a year now and Henry has always maintained that a small share is available but that at no point is Fenway Sports Group looking to be bought out.
TalkSPORT reporter Ian Abrahams tweeted that he was aware of an entity ready to buy Liverpool and it caught the attention of both supporters and the current owner of the football club.
In a typically destructive response, Henry tweeted Abrahams and ripped the journo a new one, much to the pleasure of the club’s supporters.

Twitter is hardly a safe space and Moose will be well aware of that now. I am sure that Henry didn’t mean to spark a Twitter meme-fest but Moose will hear about this for the next few months at least.
