John Henry’s call to limit Premier League spending is “strange” and Liverpool bosses will “make a fuss” if it drags the Merseyside club into mid-table.
That’s the view of financial expert Kieran Maguire, who works exclusively with football insider On Henry’s call for Premier League teams to limit spending.
According to reports era Last Tuesday (March 7), Henry insisted that the Premier League should introduce a spending cap “so the league doesn’t go through the same mistakes as the European League, where one or two clubs a year have little competition.”
The Liverpool boss added that his side will not take an “unsustainable path” in chasing success

Maguire sees Henry’s claims as proof that Liverpool realize they cannot maintain the same level of spending as rivals Manchester United and Manchester City.
“John Henry’s desire for spending restraint is a bit odd indeed” Maguire told Football Insider.
“As far as the Premier League is concerned, he just seems to be looking up rather than down, and seeing things in a wider context.
“If these spending constraints mean that Liverpool end up being closer to smaller clubs in terms of spending power, then I have no doubt he will make a big fuss.
“I think his comments show that it will be difficult for Liverpool to maintain the same level of player spending as Manchester City or Manchester United.
“At the same time you have to be careful not to put Premier League clubs at a disadvantage when competing with the rest of Europe’s elite clubs.“
