Liverpool Owner Dismisses Reds Sale Talk, Burns talkSPORT Reporter on Twitter

Rumours surrounding Fenway Sports Group’s interest in selling Liverpool ratcheted back up yesterday with talkSPORT reporter Ian Abrahams tweeting that the sale of the club to a Chinese Consortium — believed to be strategic investment firm China Everbright — should be “completed before Christmas & possibly by the end of this week.”

Having constantly denied full stop that they had any intention of listening to offers except those for a small, non-controlling stake in the club from the right kind of investors, principal Reds owner John W. Henry took to social media to put the speculation surrounding a full on buy-out to bed. The American billionaire doesn’t tweet much, but when he does he makes it memorable — and his response to Abrahams, much like the jab he threw Arsenal’s way when they tried to take Luis Suarez to the Emirates, was no exception.

Well, it appears that that is that. When these same rumours did the rounds in August, the club issued a firm response with Chairman Tom Werner telling the Liverpool ECHO he they’ve “said it before and I’d like to say it again: this club is not for sale” and that they “haven’t had a discussion or a negotiation with anyone” because offers for the club “get put in the garbage.” While this might sound like like a smoke and fire situation, we’ve heard it all before. This is about the time you should be getting on with your day — enjoy!
