Henry says Liverpool may have to move

Liverpool’s principal owner has acknowledged the club might have

to leave Anfield for a new stadium.

John Henry’s Fenway Sports Group has been considering stadium

options since buying the club in October, and the American says on

Twitter that a move might be inevitable.

Responding to a fan urging him to keep Liverpool at its home of

119 years, Henry says: ”Anfield would certainly be our first

choice. But realities may dictate otherwise. So many

obstacles.”

With Anfield holding 45,000 seats, Manchester United and Arsenal

raise far more revenue from tickets and other matchday revenue from

their bigger stadiums.

United and Arsenal have won 16 English championships between

them since Liverpool’s last title in 1990.
