Liverpool owner Tom Hicks has dispelled supporter’s fears that the club’s best players will be sold in the near future.
There was a growing concern that with the prospect of Liverpool crashing out of the group stages that sacrifices may have had to be made, in order to make up for the lost revenues that are generated from reaching the latter stages of European football’s premier competition.
The Texan who also used the opportunity to discuss Liverpool’s intention to attract a global sponsor to help finance the Stanley Park development, claimed that the club financial outlook is good following the growing commercial revenues therefore there will be no need to cash in on players regardless of results:
“None of our star players will be sold, regardless of results.
“The club is doing very well due to rapidly growing commercial revenues.
“We have significant investor interest and want to make sure that we pick high-quality partners. We are happy with the way things are going financially, but we hoped things would be better on the pitch.” (Mirror)
