Liverpool owner to fans: Glad your patience paid off

 

Still basking in the euphoria of breaking a 30-year old jinx, Liverpool owner John W Henry has told club fans across the globe they have every right to dance in the air

It gladdens the heart according to him to see that the three decade wait to clinch the premier league finally paid off, adding that the last 14 months represents a personal peak for him.

Since June 2019 the Reds have won the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and, after a 30-year wait, the league title.

Henry’s Fenway Sports Group also owns baseball franchise Boston Red Sox, who ended their own 86-year trophy drought with a World Series victory in 2004, following up with further wins in 2007, 2013 and 2018.

But the American believes what Liverpool have achieved sits above that.

“The fact that we are champions of England, champions of Europe, the Club World Cup, and the Super Cup is just an extraordinary accomplishment by this organisation and by these players,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“To be involved with that, to have been a part of it has really been the capstone of my career and I think all of us who have been a part of Fenway Sports Group.

“Liverpool Football Club is a family and it’s really something extraordinary to be part of.

“I just want to say (to the supporters) that you’ve waited a long time for this and I know we all have to celebrate responsibly, but this really feels sort of like the gift that keeps on giving.

“Every day I get up, it’s front and centre that we won (in) England finally. So, that’s my wish for you, that every morning you get up for the next, as long as you can accomplish it, think about what we accomplished this year in Europe, England and I hope you feel as proud as I do.

“To the staff, to the players, to all of you who expended so much effort over these last two years, I just want to say thank you from all of us at Fenway Sports Group.
