Despite the buzz doing the rounds since yesterday, the Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) has denied that Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani has entered the race to take over renowned football club Liverpool FC.
The Mirror Sport ‘exclusively’ reported that Liverpool FC have been approached by the eighth-richest man in the world. However, when contacted RIL denied any takeover plans.
It is not the first time Ambani has been linked with Liverpool though. Earlier, he was eyeing a takeover bid in 2010 before Fenway Sports Group (FSG) purchased the Premier League side. In 2010 Subrata Roy of Sahara Group and Ambani were lining up a bid to purchase 51 percent of the club’s stake from former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
It is speculated that Liverpool’s owners are willing to sell the club for 4 billion pound sterling.
Ambani currently owns IPL cricket giants Mumbai Indians and also played a key role in setting up the Indian Super League (ISL).
