Liverpool owner says summer transfers will be ‘responsible’

Liverpool owner, John W Henry, has reiterated FSG’s commitment to the club, while insisting that the club’s transfer business will be ‘responsible’.

Fenway Sports Group announced in November that they were seeking additional investment in the club, though have since confirmed that they will not be cashing in and selling up.


John W Henry has now opened up on the search for investors and reiterated the Group’s ‘commitment’ to Liverpool.

“While we formalised a process that has identified potential investors for the club, we remain fully committed to the long-term success of the club,” Henry told the Liverpool Echo.

“That has been the case since day one in 2010. Our efforts every day have been and continue to be focused on the long-term health and competitiveness of the club. Investment in the club is never for the short-term. This approach has been successful over the long haul with patience necessary from time to time.

“In regard to Liverpool Football Club our commitment remains stronger than ever. The club continues to make great progress with youth on the field and off. Our Foundation is well supported and continues to quietly expand the importance of its work in different ways looking for as many small kindnesses as possible individually and hopefully cumulatively.

“The people of this club starting with its manager, its players and everyone from stewards to management are committed to the club locally, committed to maintaining the club’s great history and equally committed to making new history in a way that our supporters can be proud of.

“Being a part of this club is something no one takes for granted.”

Of course, one of the largest areas of investment needed in a football club is on the recruitment of players.

Liverpool are thought to be keen on bolstering their midfield this summer following an underwhelming season, with Jude Bellingham reported to be Jurgen Klopp’s primary target.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder is thought to be valued at well over £100 million, and while the likes of Chelsea have spent over £500m in just two transfer windows, Henry has insisted that Liverpool’s recruitment will be ‘responsible’ and sustainable.

“We continue building at Liverpool Football Club in a responsible manner,” said Henry.

“We’ve seen many football clubs (including LFC previously) go down unsustainable paths. We have and will continue to focus our attention on investing wisely in the transfer market and we remain incredibly proud of our squad.

“At the same time we continue investing in our training facilities, our main stand and currently the Anfield Road stand. These are all physical reflections of our resolve and how very seriously Fenway Sports Group takes its responsibilities for this great club.”
