Liverpool supporters group wants chairman to take account

Liverpool's supporters group, Sons of Shankly (SoS), has called for accountability from club chairman Tom Werner.

There is plenty of uncertainty surrounding the Anfield club regarding the decision of a new stadium or whether to renovate the current site.

SoS believe that there are things that need to be answered for since Fenway Sports Group took over two years ago and want Werner to come forward and be completely honest with the fans.

"There comes a point at any football club where the chairman has to step forward on behalf of the board and be held accountable for decisions that they have made and strategies that they have implemented," read a statement from SoS.

"With key questions continuing to go unanswered, Spirit of Shankly suggests it is time for Tom Werner to be held accountable as chairman of Liverpool Football Club.

"After all, the buck stops with him, not with those acting with his authority and not with people no longer at the club."

The statement also touched on Liverpool's summer transfer business which saw Andy Carroll loaned to West Ham United with a strike replacement not brought in.

"Following yet another summer where off-the-pitch activities at Liverpool Football Club have dominated the headlines, we once again find the club ownership attempting to explain away business decisions that have overshadowed footballing matters," it read.

"Spirit of Shankly reiterates its stance that the position of manager at Liverpool Football Club should be supported with all of the resources at the club's disposal.

"However, events of last Friday and the subsequent open letter from the club's principal owner indicate that almost two years into FSG's ownership of the club, this is not yet the case."
