Liverpool’s title win a ‘gift that keeps on giving’, says owner Henry

Nearly 10 years after Liverpool was taken over by Fenway Sports Group, owner John W. Henry said that after winning his first top-flight league title for 30 years, he could not become a producer for the club.

Liverpool claimed the Premier League title in June with seven games after the COVID-19 pandemic resumed after a three-month suspension.

Under Juergen Klopp, the Anfield club won their sixth Champions League crown last season, but Henry said that putting his hand on the league title for the 19th time was icing on the cake.

“It was a long time coming,” Henry told the club’s website https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/404366-john-henry-liverpool-fc-interview-premier-league-champions . “I just want to say (to supporters) that you’ve waited a long time for this … it really feels like a gift that keeps on giving.

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

“So, this is my wish, that every morning you wake up for the next one, as long as you can complete it, think about what we accomplished in Europe, England this year and I hope you are proud of me too. will feel.”
Henry, whose Fenway Sports Group took over Liverpool in October 2010, also praised Klopp for his role in the club’s success.

The 70-year-old American businessman said, “I’m excited about Jeregan and how his heart can grow bigger than his frame, his enthusiasm positively affects us all every day.”
