Jon Champion has revealed the attention to detail owner John Henry pays to Liverpool from across the pond.
Henry, the principal owner of Fenway Sports Group, who bought Liverpool in the autumn of 2010, has enjoyed a huge development at the club both on and off the pitch under his stewardship.
An American businessman, the 71-year-old spends a lot of time in the US, somewhere Champion himself can often be found.
With Henry not being at every Anfield outing or Premier League away trip, he will be making sure he keeps tabs on the club and Jurgen Klopp from afar.
And Champion, speaking as commentator on Liverpool’s clash with Newcastle United on Amazon Prime, offered a small behind-the-scenes insight into the Reds owner.
“I can vouch for John W. Henry’s attention to detail,” Champion said.
