Various newsgroups are reporting that DIC (Dubai International Capital) are rustling up a £500million bid to take Liverpool Football club away from dastardly duo George Gillett and Tom Hicks. Whereas all the talk a few weeks ago was of how untenable Rafa’s position was becoming, it now looks like Gillett and Hicks will be grateful for an escape route.
Football365 reports that :
“With Hicks and Gillett trying to re-finance the loans they took out to buy the club, DIC could move in with an offer to both men.
“The move may prove popular with the Liverpool support, if only because it may secure the immediate future of Rafa Benitez.
“Relations between Benitez and the American owners have all but collapsed after a series of public disagreements, that reached a nadir when Hicks revealed they had offered his job to Jurgen Klinsmann.”
So will DIC be greeted as heroic White Knights or Machiavellian usurpers?
