Tom Hicks hefur gefið út yfirlðýsingu á Official síðunni þar sem hann segist hafa slitið viðræðum við DIC. Beisiklí þá segir hann ástæðuna vera að þeir vilji deila stjórnuninni á Liverpool FC. Hicks segir slíkt ekki ganga:
>”DIC made it clear that if they invested in the Club, they would want it to be managed by committee. Based on my thirteen years of successful experience as an owner of professional sports teams, and based in particular on the situation at Liverpool Football Club over the past year, it is clear to me that such a committee approach would not be in the best interest of Kop, of the Club or of the Club’s loyal and passionate supporters.
>”Accordingly, I have decided to exercise my right under the Kop Football (Holdings) Limited partnership agreement to veto any sale of any portion of Kop and the Club to DIC.
