Reds future could be decided in court.
The future of Liverpool Football Club could be decided by the court, reports suggest in The Guardian. This comes in light of Tom Hicks and George Gillett attempting to block the sale of Liverpool to the owners of Boston Red Sox, believing the £300m deal represents a significant underestimation of the club’s value.
Chairman Martin Broughton, on the other hand, is willing to sell and has, with the backing of other board members, agreed a deal to sell the club. He believes he has the legal right to sell the club in spite of the current owners’ opposition.
Hodgson to avoid the sack.
Roy Hodgson could hardly have feared a more tumultuous opening four months managing Liverpool. Despite sitting in the Premier League’s relegation zone after seven games, he has been assured by Martin Broughton that the prospective new owners are not actively seeking a replacement.
“There is a commitment to the manager,” Broughton told The Guardian.
“They are happy that the manager is the right man to take this club forward.” Having overseen Liverpool’s worst start to a Premier League season, Hodgson will be relieved at the opportunity to lead the club’s recovery.
Rated as one of Scotland’s brightest prospects, centre-back Danny Wilson might have expected first-team opportunities to be more forthcoming when he joined Liverpool. His only appearance for the club came in the infamous Carling Cup defeat to Northampton and as such the Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year for 2009/10 is concentrating fully on breaking into the first team.
Speaking of the club’s ownership problems to skysports.com, he said, “I don’t think the players let that bother them. We just get on with things and concentrate on football.”
