Christian Purslow is stepping down as Liverpool’s managing director however he will be staying on as special adviser with N.E.S.V. in non footballing matters.
NESV Chairman Tom Werner said: “We are delighted Christian has accepted our offer to help us and the club, given his great experience and love for Liverpool F.C. We will now begin a global search process for a Chief Executive Officer.”
“I now look forward to assisting the owners in any way I can at this exciting time as they drive the club forward to a bright future.” Christian Purslow
Purslow said: “I came to LFC to lead the club through a sale process to get the best overall deal including, vitally, the removal of the debt. I am immensely proud of what we have all achieved.
“I now look forward to assisting the owners in any way I can at this exciting time as they drive the club forward to a bright future.”
Many of us Liverpool fans will remember Christian for his brave fight to get rid of Tom Hicks and George Gillett. Unfortunately when it came to football matters we know that he wasn’t so savvy so this appointment will sure make everyone happy.
Good luck Christian.
