    Chinese billionaire Huang goes after Liverpool FC

    Chinese billionaire Huang goes after Liverpool FC
    Eliot Sefton
    AUGUST 2, 2010



    A Chinese billionaire has made a direct offer to the Royal Bank of Scotland to purchase Liverpool's 237m debt and oust the club's American owners, George Gillett and Tom Hicks. He is Kenneth Huang, a Wall Street stockbroker and chairman of the Hong Kong-based QSL Sports group.

    Huang, backed by a Far East investment fund, hopes to conclude the deal swiftly in order to give the club's new manager, Roy Hodgson, time to strengthen the squad before the transfer window closes at the end of August.

    He also hopes to persuade the Spanish striker Fernando Torres, who is due to return to training today, to stay at the club.

    It is understood that Huang has already spoken to a number of senior figures at Liverpool FC to persuade them of the seriousness of his intent.

    However, his offer falls far short of of the 600m price Gillett and Hicks have put on their shareholding in the club.

    The Americans' favoured purchaser is businessman Yahya Kirdi, a former Syria international footballer.

    But sources at Liverpool say he is not a legitimate contender and has been put forward by the Americans only to force a better offer from Huang, giving them the chance to leave Merseyside having made at least some sort of profit

    I hope they do takeover and re-build Liverpool to their former glory days.

    I don't support a premiership club but growing up I loved watching Liverpool play with the likes of John Barnes, Peter Beardsley, Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish and many more.

    They are a massive club with a great history both in the Domestic league and in European competition, unlike the clubs of the "Nouveau Riche"

    Would be great to see this famous club back up where they belong and would also make the premiership title race more exciting.

    He is Kenneth Huang but he is not a Wall st stockbroker- he once worked for a Wall St firm as a PR executive.

    Chelsea was sold for a penny a few years back.

    I had a couple of business meetings with your current owner a couple of years ago.
    Nice guy socially, loves his football but he has no intention of running the club, he was very interested in the parachute payments for relegated clubs.. I think the original debt was to Gaydamak and went out of control from there, I feel Pompey have suffered from corrupt Chairmen, a few of whom were in on it together to create a debt and pass the club on for a cheap price.

    Nah, I wish Liverpool FC and their deluded spastic supporters many more years of mediocracy.
