Werner: Top Four Needed & Anfield Name Could Be Sold
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner admits they expect a top four finish after their transfer outlay, and is also considering selling the rights to the stadium name.
Werner hopes to increase Liverpool’s ability to spend in the transfer market after evaluating different sources of revenue for the club. The American owner is looking into the possibility of selling the naming rights of Anfield and describes the talks as “interesting”.
However, the majority of Liverpool fans are dead-set against the idea of losing the famous ‘Anfield’ name, even it is means less funds available for transfers.
Having invested £100million in players in the past six months, Werner is looking for Champions League qualification. He said:
“We all agree we want to see improvement, and certainly, finishing in the top four would indicate that.”
