Liverpool FC owner George Gillett says he will remain with the club

Liverpool FC chairman George Gilett has insisted that he will not be sold by his current club after an initial public offering of £150m.

The £150 million offer from Japanese group Nippon Ichi Holdings was made on Tuesday and Giletti said that he was keen to keep the club in the Premier League.

“I have been given the opportunity to continue to run the club, I am very keen to continue as chairman,” he said.

“It is important for me to stay at the club and to continue working with the supporters.”

Gilett, who led the club to the Europa League final last season, said he believed Liverpool FC was heading towards a new era of success under manager Jurgen Klopp.

“We have made the right decisions, we have done everything we could to stay in the top flight, and now I am in the situation that I am leaving,” he added.

“So I have to make sure that I do the best job for the club.”

The former Chelsea boss has been under pressure at Liverpool since he was sacked in May following Liverpool’s Europa League defeat to AC Milan.

He has since been on the hunt for a new club and said that the club was looking at several possible destinations.

“Obviously, it is not something that I’m looking at, but I can say that it’s something that we are working on, and it is a good possibility,” he told BBC Sport.

“The market is so important, I can only say that Liverpool FC is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and if the opportunity comes that I can come here, then that would be great.”
