If Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) and Liverpool agree to a stake or takeover, Liverpool might soon benefit from a timely infusion of cash
Following discussions between rivals Tottenham and £8 billion wealthy Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the group is apparently mulling such a deal with Premier League clubs like the Reds and Manchester United.
According to a person with knowledge of the discussion, Nasser Al-Khelaifi of Qatar Sports Investments and Daniel Levy of Tottenham Hotspur recently discussed the possibility of buying stock in the London-based club, according to David Hellier of Bloomberg. “QSI is also thinking at a full takeover or a share in competitors like Manchester United or Liverpool FC,” the individual who requested anonymity because the talks are private, said.
However, considering the ties to Qatar’s government, it is absolutely uncertain if such a contract would appeal to the club’s morally-aware core.
There is no such thing as a good billionaire, of course, but there are different levels that different owners occupy, and few fans will want to identify Liverpool’s brand with a government that continues to battle with human rights abuses.
Given our continued struggles on the field, it is obvious that we must make investments in the team. However, few people may be willing to watch the club sell its soul in the process of getting back on its feet.
