Peterborough chairman MacAnthony: FSG would prefer to sell than rebuild Liverpool team


Peterborough United chairman and Liverpool fan Darragh MacAnthony believes FSG have decided to sell up due to the massive rebuilding job that is confronting them.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Naby Keita both out of contract in the summer and the likes of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara ageing, reinforcements in this area of the pitch will be required at the end of the current campaign.

Providing his theory on why FSG are looking for a way out at Anfield, MacAnthony said on his Hard Truth podcast: “No surprise, no shock. At the end of the day, if you're the owner of Liverpool, you're looking at a midfield that's going to cost £200-250million to fix because you've let these windows go and let these players age - and you haven't replenished in those areas.

“What would three centre-midfielders for Liverpool, who want to be in the Champions League and competing for titles, cost nowadays? Seventy-to-eighty million? To get proper ones, you want Declan Rice, you want Bellingham and whoever else. Fenway, to be fair to them, maybe they're just being honest and are saying we need help so we sell a percentage of the club, we get some bigger money people in and can go and do that."
