Liverpool Chairman David Moores has almost certainly presided over his last game as Liverpool FC chairman, and what a way to end his 16 years at the Liverpool helm.
The new owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks were at Anfield to witness tonight’s game and are expected to complete the take-over on March 12th.
David Moores had said prior to tonight’s game:
“I told the Barcelona president Joan Laporta last night that I couldn’t have picked a better game with which to bow out. It doesn’t get any bigger than Liverpool versus Barcelona at Anfield. Maybe it was meant to be this way.
“If we get through tonight, it will be one of the best nights we’ve ever had here, just as memorable as when we beat Chelsea. For me, it would be even more memorable under the circumstances.
We wish David all the best in the future in his role as Life President. Not many Chairman will have been succesful enough to hand over a club having just knocked out the European Champions.
