FORMER Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks last night said he was “devastated” about the sale of the club and said it was “swindled away from me in an epic swindle”.
Asked how he felt about the sale of the club to New England Sports Ventures’ (NESV), which went through yesterday, Hicks said: “(I’m) Shocked. Devastated. Frustrated. I’m very disappointed.
“It’s hurt my family tremendously. This is a very valuable asset that was swindled away from me in an epic swindle.
“I’m very angry about it.”
