The takeover saga embroiling Liverpool should stand as a warning to clubs to be careful who they sell out to, according to FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Liverpool were bought just over a year ago by American businessmen Tom Hicks and George Gillett, but now Gillett is close to selling out his stake to Dubai Investment Capital, while Hicks has been targeted by protesting fans who want him out of the club.

Asked whether Liverpool´s situation should be a warning to other clubs, Blatter said: "Yes definitely. You get investors, because a club is a good investment - and they come and if the results are not as such as they have expected they go away. This is definitely a risk in all the clubs."
