Kieran Maguire predicts 'FSG could sell Liverpool soon' after deal agreed


FSG could look to sell Liverpool soon after seeing a ‘spectacular’ rise in the club’s value.

That is the view of finance expert Kieran Maguire, who spoke exclusively to Football Insider about what new investment in Liverpool means for FSG’s future.

The Merseyside club announced on Thursday (28 September) that a minority investment deal had been struck with global sports investment firm Dynasty Equity.

The BBC report that the value of the agreement is worth between £82m and £164m in return for a small portion of FSG’s stake in the club.

Football Insider revealed on Friday (29 September) that FSG intend to remove all debt at the club with the new investment funds.

Maguire believes FSG could soon look for an ‘exit route’ out of the club if it fits their investment plans.

“FSG are an investment vehicle – we know they’re not Liverpool fans,” Maguire told Football Insider’s Sean Fisher.

“They’re not from Merseyside and therefore they will do what they consider to be the best thing for their brand.

“And they see Liverpool as a brand.

“The value of Liverpool has risen spectacularly under FSG and they see Liverpool as a form of franchise.

“If the value of the club continues to rise then there could be a point soon where they feel that an exit route makes more sense.
“But ultimately it will be driven by commercial and business reasons.

“FSG are very, very forensic in their analysis of all of their franchise investments.“
