Fenway Sports Group will not sell Liverpool any time soon – they will instead pump more money into the transfer kitty ahead of next season.
That is according to ex-Premier League goalscorer Kevin Phillips, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after the Mirror revealed that FSG had rejected a £3billion bid to buy the club.
The offer, which came from an unnamed source in the Middle East, was turned down before the European Super League fallout.
Liverpool fans were up in arms about the proposed breakaway competition, of which FSG head John Henry was one of the chief architects.
But Phillips predicts that the anger surrounding the now-scrapped tournament will subside and FSG will continue to pump money into the club.
He told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “You look at Liverpool with their stature and their history and think: ‘Wow, they are an asset.’
“To turn down that sort of money is serious. I can’t see them being sold for a while now. The Super League stuff will gradually quieten down and disappear.
“They’ll carry on with their business in the transfer market and make the funds available for them to push for the league again next season.”
FSG have owned a controlling stake in Liverpool since 2010 when they bought into the club in a £300milllion deal.
In that time, Liverpool have won five major honours, including a Champions League and first Premier League title in three decades.
