Ex-player and pundit Jamie Carragher has questioned whether Liverpool fans can forgive owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) after this week’s European Super League debacle.

Following Liverpool owner John W. Henry’s statement this morning, in which he apologised to fans and supporters, Carragher doubted whether apologies would be enough.

I don’t see where they go from here, the owners,” he told BBC Radio Merseyside. “They apologised, that may make a difference, but I think long-term it will be really difficult for them.”

“They have made mistakes along the way, but this is the biggest one. It’s just whether supporters can ever forgive them for it. I think it will take a very long time for this to heal.”

Carragher, who has been extremely outspoken with his criticisms of the proposed Super League, had previously doubted whether FSG should continue at Liverpool at all.

“I don’t see how they can continue,” he told Sky Sports News last night. “They can’t just leave the club, obviously the business is worth a lot of money. But I don’t see a future for the ownership of FSG at Liverpool on the back of this.”

Whilst all six English clubs involved have now pulled out of the controversial Super League, the ramifications will continue to play out and questions will be asked of owners. 

Ed Woodward has resigned as Manchester United chairman, whilst Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli has also stepped down amid the fallout.
