Liverpool FC’s owner and chairman, John W Henry and Tom Werner, have today admitted that they didn’t know anything about the Merseyside club before taking over, although they knew about United.
“Very little,” replied Henry when asked of his knowledge of the Premier League. “We knew virtually nothing about Liverpool Football Club nor EPL.”
Whilst Werner knew more about English football, particularly United.
“I had been in sports so I was aware of the EPL and its strength globally,” said Werner. “But I didn’t know the inner workings of it. I certainly knew about Manchester United.”
