John Henry, owner of Liverpool  said his commitment to the club is “as stronger then ever” in a recent interview.

Speaking with the Liverpool Echo, Henry said:

“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,”

“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”.

“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.”

A key area of interest for fans is what Liverpool will do in this summer’s transfer market, as it’s clear the team needs reinforcements.

Henry said on this subject:

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

“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.”
