Pats owner may try pro soccer

BOSTON, March 3 (UPI) -- Robert Kraft, owner of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, is considering expanding into another kind of football -- pro soccer.

The British press says Kraft is backing a consortium seeking to buy Liverpool's soccer team. While not commenting on that report, a spokesman has confirmed Kraft's interest in sports investment opportunities on a global scale, the Boston Herald said Thursday.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James made it clear Kraft would not rule out exploring new sports deals far beyond U.S. shores. The Kraft family, through its paper-products company, does business in 83 countries.

"When opportunities arise, whether local, national or international, it wouldn't surprise me for the Krafts to be mentioned as showing some interest," James said.
