Supporters’ group Spirit of Shankly are to hold their second meeting with Liverpool this week as bridges continue to be rebuilt following the backlash to the club’s involvement in the failed European Super League.

Last week SOS met with chief executive Billy Hogan and other officials and asked for two representatives to be introduced at board level to voice opinions on fan issues, a formal agreement to improve collaboration and supporter engagement and involvement, and for owners Fenway Sports Group and the club to collaborate with SOS to lead the reform agenda ahead of the forthcoming national fan-led review.

SOS also requested a commitment from FSG that any costs incurred in relation to their failed Super League involvement will be funded solely by the owners and not by the club, as the Kroenke family at Arsenal have pledged to do.

“The aim is to hear the club’s response to our requests and to make progress towards reaching agreement,” said a statement from the group.
