Liverpool FC News: Shareholder LeBron James Expresses Doubt on Season Ahead
LeBron James may have finally won his first NBA championship last month, but he has expressed a distinct lack of confidence in his club finding similar success in the English Premier League this season.
The NBA superstar made a deal with Liverpool owners Fenway Sports group a little over a year ago that gave him a minority stake in the club. Since then, he has been to a few matches, including Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Manchester United last October. James even released a new sneaker that celebrates the club's championships.
However, James was less than confident in comments he made about the club.
When questioned by the Daily Mail about how Liverpool would fare in the upcoming season after finishing eighth in the table last season, James said, "It's difficult for the club right now. Liverpool are a team in a period of transition at the moment, so I don't know what they can achieve."
The three-time NBA MVP is currently in training with Team USA for the Olympics, a tournament in which James won the gold four years ago.
While his comments may ring true about the state of the club at the current moment, the lack of confidence in his comments is probably not appreciated greatly by those who work with the club on a more regular basis.
