    Premier League News: Van Dijk confident Liverpool will thrive no matter who owns the club

    Virgil van Dijk is fully confident that Liverpool will remain a force in world football, no matter who owns the Reds.

    It was confirmed last month that club group Fenway Sports Group (FSG) is looking into selling or seeking outside investment as they look to keep up with the Premier League’s big sponsors.

    Reports say Liverpool are valued at £3.7bn, with Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs said to be watching the process.

    Van Dijk, speaking to reporters after helping the Netherlands beat the United States 3-1 to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup, said Liverpool will continue to thrive no matter who manages Anfield.

    “I have complete faith in Liverpool that they will be ok. We are a very reputable club, one of the biggest in the world, and it will remain that way,” he said.

    “Whoever comes to these roles, they will do a great job. I am aware of everything that is happening.

    “Do I accept it and do something about it right now, I don’t think so because all the focus is on the World Cup, but hopefully everything will be sorted out and cleared up when I get back. At the moment, I definitely don’t think about it.”

    Liverpool have struggled for stability ahead of the World Cup and sit sixth in the Premier League, 15 points behind leaders Arsenal and seven points behind Spurs in fourth place.

    They won five of their six Champions League group stage games but finished second to Napoli on goal difference and faced Real Madrid in the round of 16, a repeat of last season’s final, in which they lost 1-0.
