Fenway Sports Group ‘have no future at Liverpool’ following their involvement in the European Super League and eventual withdrawal, according to Jamie Carragher.
After Chelsea and Manchester City withdrew, the remaining four clubs, including Liverpool, all followed suit to end a tumultuous 48 hours for the game. The quartet all announced on Tuesday evening that they would no longer take part on the controversial league. Arsenal actually offered an apology, while Liverpool also made a statement.
The adversity is unlikely to stop at their withdrawal, however. Indeed, there is likely to be a number of casualties too as the fall-out continues. Ed Woodward, Manchester United’s executive vice-chairman since 2013, has already announced he’s to quit.
And with Gary Neville calling for the Glazer Family to quit United, Carragher has echoed that voice over FSG and Liverpool.
Carragher has been fiercely against the European Super League ever since its announcement on Sunday night. But, speaking to Sky Sports, he’s not letting the matter rest and has now told FSG they’re ‘no longer welcome’ at Anfield.
Furthermore, Carragher has also praised those in the game who have forced all six English sides to back down.
“I just think the reaction today of everybody on the back of this and what we saw and said yesterday,” he said. “I think Jurgen Klopp coming out, Leeds players (wearing the anti-Super League shirts), James Milner and Patrick Bamford (speaking).
“I said last night, when we got into Sky studios yesterday afternoon, I was fearful. We were in a meeting with Gary, David Jones and the producers and it was really serious. It felt like it was lost and there was no fight; not with us but the situation.
“It wasn’t until after the game, I felt re-energised. I was really confident going to bed last night that this would be all over.
“We had more players. That really gave me a huge lift. I’ve been convinced since this morning that this was going to be over. This is finished now.”
Carragher says FSG are unwelcome at Liverpool
Carragher next turned his fury to Fenway Sports Group and says their ownership at Liverpool FC is under question.

“I’m so angry with them right now.
“Jurgen Klopp has thrown them under the bus. Their own captain has throw them under the bus. Even your dad has Kelly [Kenny Dalglish].
“There’s nothing left for them. I don’t see how they can continue.
“I dont see a future for the ownership for FSG at Liverpool on the back of this. I think they’re making it worse for themselves.”
