Liverpool's owner John W. Henry
  • It’s almost a decade since Fenway Sports Group took over Liverpool. The club’s owner John W. Henry expressed his joy and pride in the club after it won the top-flight league title after 30 years of drought.

The Reds were crowned as the Premier League champions in June in record time – with seven matches remaining. This was after the resumption of matches following a three-month suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Henry’s Fenway Sports Group took over Liverpool in October 2010. He paid tribute to the team’s magnificent achievement and expressed gratitude to the fans via the club’s official website.

“It was a long time coming,” he expressed. “I just want to say (to the supporters) that you’ve waited a long time for this … this really feels sort of like the gift that keeps on giving.

“Every day I get up, it’s front and centre that we won (in) England finally.

“So, that’s my wish for you, that every morning you get up for the next, as long as you can accomplish it, think about what we accomplished this year in Europe, England and I hope you feel as proud as I do.” He added.

Henry hailed Jurgen Klopp for the role he played in transforming Liverpool into Champions League winners and Premier League title contenders since inheriting the managerial reigns at Anfield in 2015.

“I could go on and on about Jurgen and how his heart is larger than his frame, how his enthusiasm affects all of us positively every day,” he said.

“But I think what’s important is he is determined every day to do the right thing, whether it’s with regard to what happens on the pitch, whether it’s regard to nutrition for the club… and that rubs off.”  The renowned American businessman added.
