John W Henry made his mea culpa the day after the announcement of Liverpool’s withdrawal from the Super League, in the wake of other English clubs, asking the supporters for forgiveness.
The about-face was spectacular to say the least. 48 hours after the announcement of the creation of the Super League, this semi-closed competition wanted by 12 English, Spanish and Italian leaders to supplant the Champions League, not sufficiently remunerative for their taste, the six representatives of the Premier League finally announced their withdrawal from the project. Blame it on the hostility that greeted this initiative, whether among English football leaders, players or supporters.

Owner of Liverpool, John W Henry also wanted to apologize to the fans of the Reds, taking care to take full responsibility for this affair. “I want to apologize to all Liverpool fans and supporters for the disruption I have caused over the past 48 hours, he launched in a video posted on the club’s website. It goes without saying that the proposed project was never going to unfold without the support of the fans. No one thought differently in England. During those 48 hours, you have been very clear. We heard you, I heard you. “
The American businessman also made amends to the players and Jürgen Klopp, who did not hesitate to react to show their disapproval. “I also want to apologize to Jürgen, the players and everyone who works so hard to make our fans proud. They have absolutely no responsibility for these disturbances, has indeed continued the native of Illinois. They were the most disturbed and unfairly. This is what hurts the most. They love the club and work to make you proud every day. I let you down. I am once again sorry and solely responsible for what happened during the last two days. It’s something I won’t forget. ”
