The off-loading of high-earners from the club in recent months, such as Luis Suarez, has led many to believe that such an income boost could be in relation to the club preparing themselves for FSG possibly selling up.
However, in an interview with FC Business Magazine, Ayre rubbished the claims; stating that Fenway are clearly demonstrating their commitment to club in the redevelopment plans of the new stadium.
The new Anfield stand will see the Reds generate £20m in additional revenue with the stand offering 4,000 extra seats as well as 4,500 hospitality places.
The new stadium is being funded by an interest-free loan of £115m from the owners – and Ayre clearly says this is evidence that no selling up by FSG is to happen any time soon.
