David Alexander has been speaking on the latest instalment of the Blood Red podcast, where he claimed Liverpool’s owners FSG may have reached a ‘point of no return’ following the Super League fallout.
However, the plans lasted just 48 hours after a huge backlash from supporters in England caused all of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as the Anfield outfit, to reverse their decision.
Despite all six Premier League clubs realising the error of their ways and pulling out of the proposals, long-lasting damage may already have been caused, and Alexander thinks the Liverpool owners could have crossed a line.
He said: “I think after this now, it’s going to be really difficult to settle back down to kind of just being a happy relationship again, I don’t really know what happens. I mean, it could do, but it does to me personally, just from outside looking in, [feel] like this might be a point of no return.
“I don’t know what that means because I don’t think you can just decide if you’re FSG you just go, you know what, forget this, forget the last 10 years we’ll just put Liverpool on the market and move on. You know, I think FSG have invested too much into it now, and whether that would be a good thing for Liverpool, I don’t know.”
TIF Thoughts on FSG…
Nevertheless, their plans to join the Super League without any consultation with the fans, players or manager has understandably angered and upset a large section of the fanbase, and only time will tell whether those wounds can ever heal.
