Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has been corresponding with fans via email to explain the club's current ownership issues.
The Telegraph says in the emails, Hicks blames partner George Gillett for the calamitous PR own-goal of approaching Jurgen Klinsmann as a replacement for manager Rafa Benitez last November before going on to criticise him for holding the club back.
"The club has not been run very well for a long time now. I intend to fix the problems."
In another email, Hicks writes: "I have taken huge risks because I believe our club can be the best in the world again.
"Gillett knew Klinsmann from Vail [Colorado]. In hindsight, it was a big mistake, but I have publicly, and privately, backed Rafa since our meeting December 16th.
"The finances will be fine. We are playing much better. DIC has been playing the press like a drum. Our new stadium will be the best in the world."
Hicks' exchanges with fans are part of a new charm offensive to persuade supporters to drop their opposition to his long-term ambitions to remain in charge at Anfield.
