UK Government to look in to Liverpool strife

Alan Keen MPAn All-Party Parliamentary Football Group made up of members of both the House of Commons and Lords is set to examine the turmoil inside the Anfield boardroom.

It is part of a wide-ranging review of the Premier League’s test that owners of clubs must be a ‘fit and proper person’ for the job.

Alan Keen, the Chairmen of the group said:

“What worries me is people who aren’t interested in football treating football clubs as money-making machines.

“The two Americans (at Liverpool) may appreciate the culture and traditions, and enjoy the enthusiasm of supporters for a time, but it comes back to business – that’s why people own sports teams in the States.

George Gillett is expected to be invited to attend, as is Rick Parry.
