AP Interview: John Henry on reviving Liverpool

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) Preparing for the pride and angst of watching Liverpool contest the biggest game in club football, John Henry is ready to take stock of the often-fraught, eight-year journey as owner.

The perilous plight of the club he inherited: The early mistakes as the Boston Red Sox ownership group found its feet in soccer: The challenge of restoring the team to the pinnacle of the European game: And the toughest decisions of them all: Reluctantly selling players adored by supporters.

"Maybe it's because I'm an American, but I have a difficult time understanding why anyone would want to leave Liverpool," Henry told The Associated Press in an in-depth discussion of the club carried out by email. "The club is so rich in history and tradition, supported by so many millions around the world, in virtually every country of the world."
