Thai PM eyes Liverpool bid
Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra
Billionaire Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra wants to make a bid for Liverpool after his failed attempt to buy Fulham last year.

Thawatchai Satchakul, the coach of the Thai national team, is advising Shinwatra on the bid.

He said: "I believe the prime minister already had his aides checking Liverpool's financial position.

"He is now in the process of deciding whether to bid for Liverpool. It should be a bigger club (than Fulham)."

Satchakul also advised Thaksin on his attempt to buy Fulham.

On that occasion Thaksin, who made his money in the telecommunications industry, failed because Mohamed Al Fayed did not want to sell.

"His feeling now is similar to that five or six months ago when Fulham was in the picture. If you visualised him doing shopping in a store.

"I would say the prime minister's eyes are now fixed on Liverpool," Thawatchai said.
