Pundit makes point about Chelsea, when discussing Liverpool's sale

Simon Jordan suggests Liverpool should follow in the footsteps of Chelsea as they prepare for potential new owners.

Jordan voiced his views on talkSPORT whilst discussing the possible power shift at Anfield.

Fenway Sports Group, the current owners of the Reds, reportedly put up the club for sale yesterday.

FSG bought Liverpool in 2010 for £300m and have pumped money into the project to try reproduce the glory days of yesteryear.

Their reign has been most successful with Jurgen Klopp in charge.

Since his appointment in 2015, Klopp has won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup.

But with the team wading through a muddy patch right now, FSG have decided to dirty the situation further.

Liverpool can learn from Chelsea

Liverpool fans will be waiting anxiously to see who grabs the reigns to help their side steer back in the right direction.

They might hope for investment similar to the one Chelsea received when Todd Boehly replaced Roman Abramovich last season.

Although not is all well on the pitch for the Blues, behind the scenes they seem pretty stable financially, a model Jordan urged other organisations to emulate.    

“It doesn’t have to mean this race to the bottom to find nation states that have different agendas with soft influence being at their centre. It means Liverpool will be in those hands.”

“But you can’t deny it seems to be going that way, doesn’t it? Success seems to equal nation state ownership,” questioned Jim White.

“Well tell that to Todd Boehly, because the biggest football club purchase in the history of football has just been bought by a bunch of Americans,” responded Jordan.

“Chelsea are the model, not the nation states.”

Boehly was officially handed the keys to Stamford Bridge at the end of May, in a deal worth a staggering £4.25b.

He has since heavily invested in the senior squad, splashing £278m on players over the summer.

Chelsea haven’t quite yet rewarded their owner with significant improvement, but hopefully this will arise before too long.
