One day after Liverpool FC announced its plans to withdraw from the formation of the controversial European Super League, club principal owner -- and Red Sox principal owner -- John Henry issued a lengthy apology to fans via Twitter.

In a video lasting nearly 2 ½ minutes released at 3:00 a.m. ET, Henry took responsibility for the failed plan by Liverpool and other prominent European clubs to form a breakaway league that would break the sport’s traditional order on the continent. Liverpool fans gathered to protest the proposal before the club announced it had discontinued plans to join the Super League on Tuesday.
