Liverpool given warning by Middle East investor

Liverpool were warned that prospective new major investor Prince Faisal bin Fahad bin Abdulla would be unwilling to buy into a club loaded with debt. Barry Didato, director of strategic investments for the Saudi prince's investment vehicle F6 told BBC Sport: "His Highness's shareholding could go from anything from nought to 100%.

"But he cannot be seen as a solution to the debt or problems in the existing relationship between the owners.

"His Highness would not want to get involved in the (problems between the pair), he is not a marriage counsellor."

Didato added: "The debt has to be at a manageable level before Prince Faisal would invest and the current level is high.

"He cannot be looked to as someone who is going to clean up the balance sheet - Gillett has to deal with this."

Gillett and Hicks last week issued a joint statement, stressing that any talks to bring in new investment were "at an early stage".
