Media Digest: Liverpool has been handed a huge boost ahead of facing Real Madrid in the Champions League while John W Henry has also been speaking about FSG plans.
Darwin Núñez injury update
Liverpool forward Darwin Núñez is expected to be fit to face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League with the Uruguayan forward having trained in front of the cameras on Monday afternoon.
Núñez was spotted in Kirkby as the Reds players conducted their UEFA-required open training session, despite having taken a knock to the shoulder while playing against Newcastle United.
Jürgen Klopp confirmed in his press conference that Núñez would be available as long as he could manage the pain that he was feeling, and it always seemed likely that the 23-year-old would do everything he could to be involved.
FSG confirms Liverpool future decision
Liverpool owner John W Henry has confirmed that FSG has no intention of selling the Reds and instead they are seeking a partner to come in and help with investing more funds to take the next step at Anfield.
“I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC (Liverpool Football Club), but I keep to the facts: we merely formalized an ongoing process,” he said when asked by the Boston Sports Journal what his stance was on the takeover.
Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20-plus years?”
