Jamie Carragher explains why FSG deserve more credit to Liverpool after ‘incredible’ upgrade

Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool owners FSG don’t always get the credit they deserve for transforming the club since joining in 2010.

The Reds have grown stronger on and off the pitch over the past decade, once again competing for the game’s biggest prize money and developing state-of-the-art facilities for team members and staff. coaches.

There were major oversights such as the £77 ticket offer as well as the European Super League, two mistakes that FSG eventually reversed after realizing their error in judgement.

Anfield’s redevelopment rather than relocation proved to be a welcome decision with the club’s owners, who also approved the £50m construction of the Reds’ AXA academy facility to replace Melwood. Carragher made his first visit to Liverpool’s new training ground on Friday afternoon and was surprised at the facilities available for first-team and Academy stars.

“It was my first time there. I thought it was amazing,” he told ECHO after Saturday’s Legends game at Anfield. “Liverpool deserve the best and the players they have deserve the best because they are one of the best teams in the world.

“The facilities there, it’s credit to FSG for what they’ve provided in terms of that main stand that I’m watching at the moment, what’s happening at the end of Anfield Road and the new ground must be as good as anything in Europe I love Melwood it’s where all my memories come from and I would never change that but it’s great what they have now at AXA. “

“I’ve always believed in that,” Carragher continued of the club’s decision to create a combined training environment including both first-team and Academy stars. “When I started at Melwood we were all together and the Academy was built. I always thought the split wasn’t great for the club. Who knows how much of a difference it made, but I think it’s good that we’re now all in one place. There’s all this friendliness and it’s not so important for a young player to go and train with the first team or to travel from Kirkby to Melwood. The manager knows the players, they’re in the same dining room and getting to know them. I think that certainly helps.

“I don’t think any owner gets the credit from the fans, but FSG have done a brilliant job at Liverpool. We win things, we have a way of working that is looked at around the world in terms of how we recruit, I think we have the best manager in the world, one of the best training grounds and we managed to stay at Anfield and we didn’t have to change stadiums.”
