Liverpool will no longer have a seat at the table for important Premier League meetings following a “breakdown” in trust.
That is according to finance guru and Football Insider columnist Kieran Maguire, speaking exclusively amid the fallout from the failed European Super League plans.
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has been kicked off the Premier League’s Club Broadcast Advisory Group as punishment for his club’s role in the plot.
He explains that there is a lack of consensus among the division’s other teams as to whether the breakaway clubs should be punished further.
He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “My understanding is that the room is split as far as the other Premier League clubs are concerned.
“The six clubs can afford a fine. But is it just, to a certain extent, tokenism?
“The key thing that has taken place is the executives of the six clubs have been removed from a number of committees in the Premier League because of a breakdown in trust.
“From a personal point of view, if you are going into regular meetings where everybody knows that you are untrustworthy and a liar, that must make you pretty uncomfortable.
“The world of business is the world of business. People aren’t 100 per cent truthful all the time and that is accepted. But this has taken deception to a new level.”
Werner has been involved at Anfield for over a decade after FSG’s takeover in 2010.
He has seen Liverpool restored to its former glories, with the club winning the Champions League and Premier League in recent seasons.
