Liverpool's principal owner John W Henry has apologised for his part in the proposed European Super League.
Henry said in a video posted by the club on Twitter that the breakaway project would only have worked with fans' full support.
"I want to apologise to all the fans and supporters of Liverpool Football Club for the disruption I caused over the last 48 hours," he said.
"It goes without saying but should be said, the project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans."
Henry spoke of the "hurt" being felt and also apologised to manager Jurgen Klopp, his staff and players "and to everyone who works so hard at LFC to make our fans proud".
Henry said he took full personal responsibility for "the unnecessary negativity" and that fans had displayed their "rightful power".

"I want to apologise to all the fans, supporters of Liverpool Football Club, for the disruption I caused over the past 48 hours. It goes without saying. But it should be said that the project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans. No one ever thought differently in England. Over these 48 hours. You were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you. And I want to apologise to Jurgen (Klopp), to Billy Hogan, to the players and to everyone who worked so hard at LFC to make our fans proud. They have absolutely no responsibility for this disruption. They were the most disrupted and unfairly so. This is what hurts most. They love your club and work to make you proud every single day. I know the entire LFC team has the expertise, leadership and passion necessary to rebuild trust and help us move forward. More than a decade ago, when we signed up for the challenges associated with football, we dreamed of what you dreamed of and we've worked hard to improve your club. Our work isn't done. And I hope you'll understand that even when we make mistakes, we're trying to work in your club's best interests. In this endeavor, I've let you down again. I'm sorry. And I alone am responsible for the unnecessary negativity brought forward over the past couple of days. It's something I won't forget and shows the power the fans have today and will rightly continue to have. If there's one thing this horrible pandemic has clearly shown, it's how crucial fans are to our sport and to every sport it's shown in every empty stadium. It's been an incredibly tough year for all of us, virtually no one unaffected. It's important that the Liverpool football family remain intact, vital and committed to what we've seen from you globally with local gestures of kindness and support. I can promise you I will do whatever I can to further that. Thanks for listening."
