Mukesh Ambani Wants To Buy English Premier League Team Liverpool


Mumbai: Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani, who owns Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Mumbai Indians, has reportedly entered the race to buy the English football team, Liverpool. According to a report in Mirror, Ambani is among the several potential buyers of the six-time UEFA Champions League-winning team.

It was reported earlier this month that Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the conglomerate which owns Liverpool, has put the English Premier League club up for sale. The United States of America-based conglomerate is looking for around £4 billion for the sale.

A statement from FSG read: “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably, we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool.

“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions, we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.”

The Anfied outfit has enjoyed immense success under FSG with Jurgen Klopp’s side winning a Premier League title, a Champions League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and European Super Cup over the past few years.

Others in the fray include parties from the Gulf and the USA.

Ambani’s company owns Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket side Mumbai Indians and also runs the Indian Super League football event besides being the commercial partners of the All India Football Federation (AIFF).
