Liverpool FC's web site continues to publish endorsements of New England Sports Ventures, the group set to take over club ownership from Tom Hick and George Gillett's Kop Holdings. Yesterday, it was chairman Martin Broughton and vice-captain Jamie Carragher. Today, it's manager Roy Hodgson.
As published by the club on Thursday morning, Roy Hodgson called the agreement "very positive," saying he "was delighted to hear the news," saying "[t]he club will be in pretty healthy situation ... if the sale goes through."
"It's very positive and of course I'm delighted," he told Liverpoolfc.tv. "It's been going on a long time and I know how hard the Board have worked to set things up.
"I know it's not easy for them because the owners have other ideas in terms of the sale of the club and what is achievable. But I was delighted to hear the news and have it confirmed that it looks like it is going to go through."
