John W Henry would sell Liverpool at a reduced price after last week’s European Super League debacle.
That’s the opinion of former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the future of Liverpool.
Last week, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claimed that one owner of a ‘big six’ Premier League side is close to putting their club up for sale.

This comes after an embarrassing climb down from the six English clubs who wanted to break away and join the proposed Super League.
Henry apologised for his role in the scheme and Robinson claims that if he is the owner who wants to sell, then he would now accept a lower offer to cut his ties with Liverpool.
“I think in the current financial climate it’s going to be very hard to sell a multi-billion pound business,” Robinson told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“If somebody has the money then everything has a price. Certain top clubs are always for sale for the right price.
“As much as you love your house or your car if someone came in and offered two or three times what it’s worth, it’s got a price.
“There are a lot of owners and chairmen out there who are very uncomfortable after what happened with the Super League and the pressure they’re now under.
“They would jump ship for slightly less than what they would’ve taken two weeks ago.”
Henry’s Fenway Sports Group has owned Liverpool since 2010, taking over from Tom Hicks and George N Gillett.
