Liverpool owner John Henry says Fenway Sports Group’s (FSG) commitment to Liverpool “remains stronger than ever” as negotiations with potential investors continue.
In November, FSG announced it was open to new investment, but Henry made it clear last month that the Premier League club is not fully up for sale.
That remains in place and Henry confirmed in a rare interview on Tuesday that FSG is looking for a third party to add to its investment to develop the club.
“While we have formalized the process for identifying potential investors for the club, we remain fully committed to the long-term success of the club,” Henry told the Liverpool Echo.
“It’s been that way since day one in 2010. Our daily efforts have been and continue to be focused on the club’s long-term health and competitiveness.
“Investing in a club is never short-term. This approach has been successful for a long time and patience has been required at times.
“For Liverpool Football Club, our commitment remains stronger than ever. The club continues to have great success with youngsters on and off the field.”

Liverpool have won eight trophies including the Premier League and the Champions League since FSG bought the club 12 and a half years ago.
Despite their on-field success, FSG has been criticized on several issues, including Liverpool’s attempt to join the European Super League and a perceived lack of investment.
Jurgen Klopp has stressed the need for a buff at the end of a disappointing season, but Henry has hinted there will be no mega spending in the next transfer window.
“We continue to responsibly build Liverpool Football Club,” he said. “We have seen many football clubs go down an unsustainable path.
“We have and will continue to focus on investing wisely in the transfer market and we continue to be incredibly proud of our team.
“At the same time, we continue to invest in our training facilities, our main stand and currently the Anfield Road stand.
“It’s all a physical reflection of our determination and how seriously Fenway Sports Group takes its responsibility to this great club.”
