Liverpool owner John W Henry has spoken for the first time after his club dramatically pulled out of the Super League on Tuesday night.

The Reds were one of 12 clubs who opted to break away from the Champions League over the weekend and form a closed competition with the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus.

But in an astonishing turn of events, six English clubs dropped out of the tournament overnight after huge fan backlash.

And Henry has now released a statement, apologising to the fans, players and Jürgen Klopp for the “disruption” it caused.

Liverpool will now turn their attentions of facing Newcastle in the Premier League on Saturday.
