Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra does not want to buy Liverpool, according to his advisor.
Thaksin has been linked with a takeover of the Reds
Thailand coach Thavatchai Sajakul says Thaksin wants to link up with Liverpool to promote football in Thailand.
"Our intention is not to take over," Sajakul said. "We just want some kind of access to a Premier League club.
"We're looking very closely at Liverpool and aside from the access we need some co-operation. Our intention is just to support Thai football."
He added: "Our prime minister has already spoken to the Liverpool chairman but the details of it cannot be revealed.
"I think negotiations have been going on for the last two-and-a-half months.
"We have told them our intentions, our interest and they haven't come back officially."
