Ok, admittedly that title sounds a bit boring, but John W. Henry is anything but and if you’ve got some time, his lecture at the Boston Chamber of Commerce is packed with quite a few interesting pieces — including the American calling Reds striker Luis Suarez “the worlds most exciting player” and cracking jokes about the money he wasted during his first season at the helm.
Liverpool’s primary owner also stressed the importance of the Reds as a global brand, pointing out to the American crowd that when the Merseysiders meet the likes of Manchester United, it attracts an audience of almost a billion TV viewers across the globe. That figure is nearly nine-times the amount of people who tune into the Superbowl — a one off match that happens only once a year. Liverpool, in turn, meet their arch-rivals at least twice.
A thrilling 5-3 victory over Stoke City yesterday saw Suarez bag another brace as he brought his tally for the season to an amazing 22 goals. Henry refused to sell the want-away Uruguayan during the summer transfer window and has since convinced a player he compares to Boston Red Sox ace David Ortiz to extend his stay on Merseyside with a hefty pay-raise in a new contract — proving he just might be the worlds best businessman.
