Henry sends open letter to Liverpool fans

Liverpool owner John W. Henry has written an open letter to the clubs fans regarding their business in the summer transfer window.

The Reds loaned out Andy Carroll to West Ham United but were unable to find a replacement, leaving manager Brendan Rodgers with just Luis Suarez and summer signing Fabio Borini as their only recognized strikers.

The move has been criticised by many outsiders as well as a lot of Liverpool people and Henry felt it was appropriate to notify the supporters exactly what occurred with the Carroll loan.

"I am as disappointed as anyone connected with Liverpool Football Club that we were unable to add further to our strike force in this summer transfer window," he wrote.

"But that was not through any lack of desire or effort on the part of all of those involved.

"They pushed hard in the final days of the transfer window on a number of forward targets and it is unfortunate that on this occasion we were unable to conclude acceptable deals to bring those targets in.

"But a summer window which brought in three young, but significantly talented starters in Joe Allen, Nuri Sahin and Fabio Borini as well as two exciting young potential stars of the future - Samed Yesil and Oussama Assaidi - could hardly be deemed a failure as we build for the future."
