Liverpool’s prospective new owner, John W Henry, has told the club’s supporters he is keen for the club’s ownership issue to be resolved as quickly as possible.
Henry’s New England Sports Ventures group, which also owns the Boston Red Sox, have seen their £300million bid accepted by the Reds but their takeover has been held up by the refusal of the club’s currents owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, to accept the deal.
Hicks and Gillett are attempting to block the sale and a decision will be made in the High Court, with the case beginning on Tuesday morning.
The club’s major creditors Royal Bank of Scotland have taken out an injunction against Hicks and Gillett to prevent them changing the structure of the board.
The 61-year-old Henry is monitoring developments but he will not comment specifically on the ongoing situation.
However, he has started to communicate with fans via Twitter.
“Hello LFC supporters,” he opened up with on Tuesday morning.
That prompted a number of questions, to which he responded: “Thanks Yes, everyone is hoping for the best. There have been enough twists and turns.
“Hopefully all gets sorted out soon; LFC moves forward.
“It would be inappropriate and presumptuous at this time to respond to questions. In the interim, we’re all rooting for the same thing.”
