Liverpool Football Club’s principal owner, John W Henry, has apologized to supporters for the club’s involvement in the proposed European Super League.

In a video message posted on the club’s Twitter on April 21, Henry says the “project put forward was never going to stand without the support of fans”.

Henry also apologized to manager Jurgen Klopp and his players.

“In this endeavor, I’ve let you down,” Henry says, “and again I’m sorry and I alone am responsible for the unnecessary negativity.”

Twelve European clubs announced on Sunday that they would be joining the breakaway Super League competition. The six English clubs involved had all dropped out by Tuesday.
