Lars Ohly wants to see new and proper owners for Liverpool F.C - Now!
Lars Ohly, the chairman of Vänsterpartiet (Sweden's Party of the Left), and a big Liverpool F.C fan. Took a moment before his speech to the nation at Almedalen, to speak to Josephine Freje Simonsson
about the current situation at his beloved football club.
When asked about the current owners - "Tom and George will ALWAYS walk alone! I'm very disappointed with them. They did not support Benitez(the former Manager), and failed to give him the right conditions needed in which to do his job"
When talking about Benitez - "I thought he was great. I was never one of the people who wanted to see him go".
On the future for the club - "I want to see new and proper owners - now".

Joackim - I'll forward you the e-mail that Josephine sent me, It's all in English, but she'll be able to give you all the quotes in swedish if there useful to you. She's going to be pretty busy tonight as she's working for Debatt (20.00), you might get to see her in the background, she'll be wearing a Liverpool top.
I'll forward this stuff to S.O.S when she gives this clearance. I've slightly tweaked the quotes which are from her translation, so that they read better.
