American Tom Hicks to Buy Roma?
Well, it’s all Italy all the time here. But this is a weird one. Why — given UEFA regulations prohibit an individual owning a majority shareholding in two competing clubs and that Roma and Liverpool regularly both play in the Champions League — did speculation about Liverpool’s Tom Hicks buying Roma lead to a big jump in their share price? Surely he wouldn’t ditch Liverpool so soon, though it’s conceivable he could buy a small share of the Italian club, which would be interesting given the crisis there.
