Pundit can't believe 'crazy' takeover latest as Liverpool fan revolt mooted

Noel Whelan has insisted he is not worried about the big-six clubs implementing “crazy” changes to the Premier League even if Liverpool are purchased by a more hands-on owner.

The former Leeds striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, claimed the smaller clubs and top-flight fans ultimately hold the deciding vote on the future of the league.

According to the Liverpool Echo on Thursday (17 November), that US investor group Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment are now considering launching a bid for the Reds after they were put up for sale by Fenway Sports Group earlier this month.

Football Insider revealed later that day that Liverpool powerbroker Mike Gordon has quit his day-to-day role to oversee the club’s takeover.

Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has recently come under fire for his suggestion of a Premier League “All-Star” game – similar to top sports in the US.

Presently, four of the big six clubs are under US ownership – with all six clubs giving their backing to the European Super League project before backing out due to fan pressure.

When asked if we could see big changes to the Premier League following a fresh Liverpool takeover, Whelan told Football Insider’s Ewan Kingsbury: “No. They’re running a football club, not the Premier League.

“They can come with all the crazy, weird and wonderful suggestions they want – but I still can’t see any big changes at Liverpool or the league as a whole.

“It’s as simple as that.

“The final say comes down to the other clubs, and the fans. Don’t forget how the fans stood up against the Super League.

“I don’t think four of the biggest clubs should be a representative of the Premier League as a whole.”
