Ornstein provides fresh update on FSG’s stance amid heavy LFC interest

David Ornstein has provided an update on the current status of the Liverpool property following FSG’s statement earlier this week that appeared to invite investment offers.

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is one of those who has been linked to a move, while the Mirror reported today that Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani has “already inquired” about reaching a deal.

Groups from the Middle East are also believed to be expressing interest, but Ornstein has now suggested the kind of parties John Henry and company are likely to avoid.

“[Klopp] He has just signed a new long-term deal and from what we hear the owners have assured him that they are not going to do this quickly,” Ornstein told Sky Sports (via Rousing The Kop). “They’re going to do it, if it happens, to the right people.

“And therefore, I think they would have that moral compass as well. I don’t think so [FSG] he will want to pass Liverpool into hands he is not happy with.

“We already hear rumors within the industry that they have rejected approaches, or are unwilling to go forward with expressions of interest from parties who may not feel they are the right route. And because of that, many people would take on a nation-state.”

Jurgen Klopp, who earlier this year signed a new contract with the club until 2026, has admitted he “likes” the idea of ​​the FSG encouraging new investors into the club and insists he remains committed to the club no matter what. on the front of the property in the coming weeks and months.

With Liverpool fans clamoring for the club to sign an elite midfielder and Jude Bellingham being repeatedly linked with a move to Anfield, the prospect of deep-pocketed new investors will excite Reds fans.

The England international is expected to push back any potential suitors in the region of £100m to £150m and the FA Cup champions’ slow start to the season has done little to dispel demands for reinforcements in the squad. .

A filthy rich homeowner who comes to Merseyside and is willing to spend a significant amount of money is what the Kopites want, but many will understand that if the money is coming from a state-backed party that has a questionable human rights record, why example, then that could seriously tarnish Liverpool’s image as a club and as a city.

It can be an exciting time for fans, but it’s also an uncertain period.

However, it is reassuring to know that the FSG is not looking to rush the process and will consider the morality of any move before proceeding.
