Report: Senior figures at Liverpool were left stunned after big news they heard on November 7th

Senior figures at Liverpool were left stunned after they heard the big news that Fenway Sports Group had put the club up for sale, according to the Echo

FSG have enjoyed a successful spell after taking over Liverpool 12 years ago. The American group has overseen a period where the Reds have won every possible trophy under Jurgen Klopp. 

But the Athletic revealed earlier this month that the current ownership group FSG have put the club up for sale. 

The Liverpool owners then released a statement on November 7 to confirm they are exploring the possibility of selling the club. 

“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,” the statement read. 

“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.”

And it seems that the announcement sent shockwaves around the club, particularly at senior level.

Senior figures at Liverpool stunned 

The Echo reports that senior figures at Liverpool were left stunned when they heard the news FSG are willing to sell the club. 

The ownership group had hoped to explore their options quietly before the Athletic broke the news on November 7.

There have also been suggestions that FSG attempted to ‘survey the landscape’ without telling some executive-level employees at the club.

It’s set to be an interesting period for Liverpool while their owners are exploring the possibility of selling the club. 

FSG have stated that they are ‘committed’ to delivering success while they remain in charge and fans will be hoping they are true to their word. 

Liverpool have got off to a rocky start to the season and Klopp looks to be in need of some more reinforcements in January, particularly in the midfield area.
