Prince wants total Liverpool buy-out

Prospective Liverpool investor Prince Faisal bin Fahd bin Abdullah al-Saud isn't looking to get involved in the club's ownership problems.

The agreement struck between American co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks when they jointly bought Liverpool was that neither could sell their shares without the other's approval.

Since then they have grown apart and despite a public show of solidarity in the summer there are still tensions between the two.

It is an issue which could prove another stumbling block to new investment.

"His Highness would not want to get involved in the [problems between the pair], he is not a marriage counsellor," advisor Barry Didato told BBC Radio.

"He cannot be seen as a solution to the debt or problems in the existing relationship between the owners."

Didato told BBC Sport: "His Highness is an extraordinary man who is passionate about football.

"He has a tremendous respect for Liverpool and their fan base.

"He only wants what is best for them and is one of those rare breeds of investor who is in it for the long haul."
