On Wednesday morning, Henry took responsibility for the decision to be a part of the Super League. And he claimed; he had ‘let down the fans.
“I want to apologize to all the fans and supporters of Liverpool Club for the disruption I caused over the past 48 hours.
“It goes without saying but should be said that the project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans. No one ever thought differently in England. Over these 48 hours, you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.
“And I want to apologize to Jurgen [Klopp], to Billy [Hogan, chief executive], to the players, and to everyone who works so hard at LFC to make our fans proud.
“They have absolutely no responsibility for this disruption. They were the most disrupted and unfairly so. This is what hurts most. They love your club and work to make you proud every single day.
“I know the entire LFC team has the expertise, leadership, and passion necessary to rebuild trust and help us move forward.
“Again, I’m sorry, and I alone am responsible for the unnecessary negativity brought forward over the past couple of days. It’s something I won’t forget. And shows the power the fans have today and will rightly continue to have.”
Aleksander Ceferin, the UEFA president, was furious with the proposals and He labeled some club officials as “snakes and liars.”
And Ceferin also informed that any players taking part in the Super League could be expelled from playing for their countries.
