Liverpool fans were given an unlikely insight into their prospects for the rest of the January transfer window when owner John W. Henry appeared to declare he was out of clash on Twitter.
Henry’s account responded to a tweet asking him to bring Wesley Sneijder to Anfield with a simple: “im broke.”
The Reds owner was replying to a tweet from chris_haire1986, which read: “@John_W_Henry if possible please make a bid for Wesley sneijder to bring to LFC family. He’s quality and wants to come #missinglinkYNWA.”
The reply appeared, but was quickly deleted. The lack of capital letters and an apostrophe seems unusual in comparison to Henry’s usual Twitter style, but there has not yet been any claims from Henry that his account was hacked.
