Liverpool legend Nicol gives NESV thumbs up

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes NESV will be good owners of the Reds.

Nicol, currently a coach in America's Major League Soccer, believes the proposed new owners of the club will be a good fit at Anfield.

Nicol has been coach of New England Revolution since 2002, the same year NESV took over the Boston Red Sox baseball franchise, and has been able to witness first hand what effect and success they have had.

"As a member of the Liverpool family, I am excited to hear that new owners may be taking over at Liverpool," said the 48-year-old.

"My understanding of this group is that they have protected and nurtured the history and tradition of one of America's beloved teams, while bringing championships to the franchise.

"As a former player for, and now supporter of, Liverpool this is the type of ownership group Liverpool should be looking to take the club back to where it rightfully belongs."
