Henry: One aim at Liverpool

Liverpool owner John W Henry has admitted that his takeover of the club has just one aim: to bring the Premier League title back to Anfield after a 20 year drought.

Henry and the Fenway Group bought Liverpool from fellow Americans George Gillett and Tom Hicks after a protracted battle and, despite the sale of £50 million man Fernando Torres to Chelsea, has invested money into the squad with the purchases of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll.

The club have struggled to assert themselves on the title race this season, but Henry believes that his group have what it takes to deliver silverware to Anfield once again.

"We have a unique skill-set at Fenway, and it is perfectly suited to breaking what they call curses'', he said. ''We had an 86-year drought at Boston for winning a World Series."

"We did that, and we have a 20-year drought for winning the first division at Liverpool. Liverpool has never won a Premier League.

"There was a very strong feeling amongst us that we were uniquely qualified to break the 'curse'. Even though we didn't know the sport, we knew the sports business and knew what it takes to put together a sports organisation.

"It gives me goosebumps to think we could deliver a Premier League title to Liverpool - it's what we are there for, we have no other agenda than that."
