EPL Talk: Exclusive Interview With Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner

In England, the Red Sox are still a “powerhouse” and Theo Epstein is still a genius.

Alex Fairchild (AF):  To what extent is your experience transforming the Red Sox into a MLB powerhouse helping you turn LFC around?

Tom Werner (TW): I have said in the past that John and I are better owners at the Red Sox because of the experiences we had at the San Diego Padres and the Florida Marlins. I expect that our knowledge of running a first class baseball organization will give us useful experience that can apply to LFC.

AF: How does the European transfer market compare to that of MLB?

TW: While they are different conceptually, they both offer opportunities to dramatically improve your club. I feel that LFC is blessed to have Damien Comolli overseeing our activity in the transfer market and I think he has already made enormous strides in bringing in players such as Suarez, Carroll, Downing, Henderson, Adam, Bellamy, and Coates.

AF: Judge Damien Comolli’s performance over the summer. How would you compare him to Theo Epstein? Are you happy with the summer signings?

TW: As I said, these two are enormously gifted and I am delighted with the way that the two have gone about their business. Theo has been at this for almost 10 years and the results are clear. I would hope that 10 years from now, Damien will have performed as well at LFC and brought our fans a championship or two.
