Dubai-based consortium DIC offered £400 million to Liverpool’s co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks on Tuesday but that bid was reportedly immediately rejected by the American duo.
But DIC are in no mood to walk away with tails between their legs. The head of the Dubai International Capital Sheikh Mohammed is supposedly asking the Liverpool supporters to stage a mass rally to force Gillett and Hicks to sell their stakes to him.
A source close to him says:
Sheikh Mohammed is a Liverpool fan and wants the kudos of owning them — but not to make a profit.
He’s prepared to let Hicks sweat in his own juices until he’s forced into doing a deal.
Well, everyone seems to be a Liverpool fan these days and everyone wants to have a share of the Liverpool pie. Come on, let there be some stability at the most successful club in England.
