Liverpool not for sale, says owner Henry

Liverpool owner John Henry insists the Premier League club is not for sale but says talks are ongoing about external investment.

Fenway Sports Group, of which Henry is the founder and principal owner, said they were interested in investment in November, while following a report which claimed they were inviting offers to buy the club

But rumours have persisted that there was an openness to a full takeover with reported interest from the Middle East and Henry has now clarified his intention to keep hold of Liverpool, which FSG have owned since a £300m purchase in 2010.

Speaking to the Boston Sports Journal, Henry said: "Yes. I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC (Liverpool Football Club), but I keep to the facts: we merely formalized an ongoing process.

"Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won't be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20+ years?"
