Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov has revealed that he had the opportunity to buy Liverpool FC recently for £200million.

Romanov is likely to be referring to the sale of club at the time that former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett were looking for a buyer, before Fenway Sports Group eventually purchased the club in October 2010.

The 65-year-old businessman is quoted in The Scotsman as saying, “I had the opportunity to buy Liverpool for as little as £200 million.

“Frankly, I then got scared. After a few days, the price had gone to three times that value and I realised that missed my chance.

“I already own Hearts in Edinburgh and the Scottish football fans and the public love me.”

Romanov’s personal wealth is estimated to be around £100million.
