Liverpool’s owners have transformed the club in their decade of stewardship. FSG took over the club with the business facing administration and with the fans distraught at what the side had become. Thankfully, John Henry and co have turned out to be messianic figures, putting us firmly back on our perch. The Times have reported that FSG plan to buy a European club, a move which could massively benefit Liverpool in the long term.
When FSG bought Liverpool Football Club we were on the brink of administration having been driven into the ground and saddled with debt by the Hicks and Gillette ownership.
In the decade since we’ve seen the Boston based owners turn our fortunes around on and off the pitch.
The Reds have posted record profits, become of the envy of the world in the transfer market and have been crowned Champions of Everything.
FSG planning to buy European club
According to The Times, FSG are planning to buy a European club.
The move would be to do with the upcoming merger with Red Ball – the Billy Beane backed investment company.
FSG are set to sell 25% of the club to Red Ball. This would give the owners a massive cash injection which apparently could be used to buy a club in Europe.
Sister side would benefit Liverpool
Look at the Red Bull franchise. Red Bull Salzburg are a production line of players for RB Leipzig.
That is what we could be looking at if FSG were to buy a sister club in Europe.
The Reds would be able to have first dibs on top talents developed at a team on the continent and we’d be able to send youngsters out to the sister side to gain regular first team experience.
We just need to wait and see which club it is the owners will be looking to buy.
