A very matter of fact statement appeared on the Liverpool website this afternoon:
Liverpool FC confirmed today that David Moores has resigned from the Club’s Board of Directors.
Mr Moores will, however, retain his position as Club Honorary Life President.
David Moores sold his controlling stake in Liverpool FC to Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jnr for around £85 million back in January 2007 after being convinced that they were ideal as ‘custodians’ of the club. Whilst Moores did have a vote on the board, he had no significant influence.
Another former board member, Rick Parry the club’s Chief Executive, will be replaced shortly and the job advertisement for his replacement is now available.
So if you can:
- ‘understand the methodology of growing, developing and leveraging the value of a global entertainment brand’
- ‘monetise an internationally disbursed fan base’
- ‘work with the manager ensuring he has the necessary resources and support to achieve outstanding results’
then you could be set.
Most importantly of all is the very demanding role of:
- ‘work closely with government agencies to ensure the plans for the new stadium are kept on track and delivered’
Should be tricky that last one.
More information on the job can be found on the recruitment firm’s website here.
And finally, Antonio Gomez Perez, has been added to the Anfield Coaching staff. The 35 year old played under Benitez in Real Madrid’s youth side, before coaching at Toledo and then Albacete. His Albacete side beat Valencia to the Spanish Youth Cup in 2007.
He will be the new reserve team boss John McMahon’s right hand man.
Good luck ‘Toni !
