Liverpool owner Henry, speaking after announcing his baseball side Boston Red Sox will play New York Yankees in London, says FSG are willing to invest in the squad.

“They (the supporters) will never stop worrying about who’s potentially coming and going,” he told BBC.

“What I can say is that we realise that any team that goes this deep into the Champions League has a difficult time in the Premier League.

“You have to focus your attention where you can and try to keep your players healthy, playing twice a week often.

“We’re looking forward to next season. We always invest in the squad every summer.”

“It meant everything,” he added.

“Our history in Europe is second to none, so it meant everything to the club.

“The fans are really what got us past Man City and perhaps Roma. They gave us a tremendous boost.

“Jurgen’s done a tremendous job, and you really have to hand it to the players who have stepped up at the most important time.”
