Liverpool investor highlights main reason for FSG success ahead of Manchester City showdown

This year will see Fenway Sports Group celebrate 12 years as owner of Liverpool, while across the Atlantic it will be 20 years at the helm of the Boston Red Sox.

In Boston, FSG ended an 86-year wait for a World Series title just two years after taking charge, winning baseball’s most coveted award in 2004, a feat that was followed three more times. since, in 2007, 2013 and 2018. While it hasn’t been a trip without a few bumps in the road in the United States, they have undeniably brought back a winning culture to one of the most legendary sports teams in American sports. .

At Liverpool, there were similarities. FSG were vindicated in pursuing a data-driven strategy that invested in people to seek value where others missed it, and hiring Jurgen Klopp in 2015 was arguably their decision the smartest, with the German having steered the Reds to a Premier League title – their first Premier League title in 30 years, a Champions League crown, League Cup success and a Champions League victory FIFA Club World. Now, in 2022, they are chasing an unprecedented quadruple, a potentially title-defining showdown with rivals Manchester City on Sunday.

This has helped to invest more in infrastructure and playing staff, although some will argue in Boston and Liverpool that more could have been done on occasion when it comes to the latter.
