Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton hands over control to Americans

By Sportsmail Reporter Last updated at 11:55 PM on 20th November 2010

Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton will step down from the post before the club's next home game against Aston Villa, on December 6, to make way for incoming chairman Tom Werner from the club's new American owners NESV.

Broughton, who oversaw the £300million sale to NESV by Tom Hicks and George Gillett, performed his last major task, representing Liverpool with director Iian Ayre at a Ppremier League chairmen's meeting on Friday.

The appointment of Werner will be announced within the next fortnight, with John W Henry being given the moniker Principal owner.

'This has been one of the most memorable experiences of my working life and would like to wish Liverpool and its supporters every success for the future.

'Everybody associated with the club can now look forward to an exciting future with the right owners and the club on a secure financial footing.

'Ii am proud to have been chairman during this turbulent time and would like to thank you all for the support you gave me, Christian Purslow, Ian Ayre and all the staff.'

Werner appointed Liverpool FC chairman from December 1

Nov 25 2010 by James Pearce, Liverpool Daily Post

LIVERPOOL principal owner John Henry today paid tribute to Anfield's outgoing chairman Martin Broughton - as he confirmed Tom Werner will take over the role on December 1.

New England Sports Ventures (NESV) and Liverpool FC released a statement saying American TV exeutive Werner will become chairman of the Reds when British Airways chairman Broughton, steps down from his term of office on November 30.

Broughton, along with departed former managing director Christian Purslow and Anfield Commercial Director Ian Ayre, was pivotal in removing detested former owners Tom Hick and George Gillett following dramatic court battles on either side of the Atlantic last month.

Boston Red Sox baseball team owner and former hedge fund manager Henry said: "I want to pay tribute to Martin Broughton and the magnificent job he has done for Liverpool FC.

"He was appointed in difficult circumstances and faced challenging times yet he always focused on doing what was in the best long-term interests of the club.

"It has been a pleasure for us to work with Martin and we wish him well in all that he does in the future."

Added Boston based Henry: "I am delighted that Tom has agreed to take over as chairman.

"It is a crucial role as we move forward and no-one is better placed than Tom to take up the reins and help provide leadership and vision in the coming years."

Werner said: "It is a great honour to be taking over from Martin as chairman of this great club. We have a tremendous foundation to build on for this season and the long-term.

"Our goal is to work tirelessly for our supporters and deliver the best conditions for a winning team and silverware in the trophy room."

Broughton, a long term Chelsea fan, added: "This has been one of the most memorable experiences of my working life and I'm proud to have played my part in helping to secure the future of this wonderful club.

"It was always my intention to stand down once the sale was completed and I'm happy that Liverpool FC is now in good hands.

"Everyone associated with the club can look forward to an exciting future with the right owners and the club on a secure financial footing.

"I've been impressed with the way that NESV have already approached the job ahead and both John and Tom are winners who want to see the club competing again at the top of European football.

"I also want to say a big thank you to the Liverpool fans for all their support during the past seven months.

"This is a very special place with fantastic supporters and through a difficult time they always kept faith in what we were trying to do.

"I've grown to love the club and it's been a privilege for me to have been here."

Masse salariale trop grande....

Certains cadres ne répondant pas aux attentes ne souhaitent pas quitter le club, car ils ont un (très) bon salaire chez nous.

Vu que NESV souhaite diminuer la masse salariale, il faudra bien trouver une solution. Les joueurs notamment visés sont Joe Cole et Ryan Babel pour ne citer qu'eux.

Bref, on n'est pas sortis de l'auberge.

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner insists Kenny Dalglish will be given funds to strengthen the squad at Anfield.

Dalglish has taken charge for the rest of the season at Anfield following the sacking of Roy Hodgson this month.

"I would we devastated if we didn't see some improvement," Werner told BBC Sport. "We've identified some targets and hope we will be successful.

"I expect progress, we've resources to improve, we're not driven by spending, but our team needs to get younger."

The appointment of Anfield legend Dalglish, who made 355 appearances for the club and managed the team from 1985-1991, was hugely popular with the Liverpool fans, who had become disillusioned with Hodgson.

Dalglish began his new spell with two defeats and a draw but Werner said: "We feel very confident we're making progress. There's not an overnight success, our squad has been inconsistent and we expect to improve it short term.

Discuss Liverpool issues

"Kenny's got many of the qualities we've looked for in a manager, he has the confidence of the players and we'll start to see better results."

Regarding Hodgson, who was dismissed after less than six months at the helm having won only seven of 20 Premier League matches, Werner said:

"He may not have been the right man for Liverpool at this time.

"We felt we needed to change. We handled it with dignity, I think quite highly of him and we all take some responsibility for what has been an inconsistent season."

Attendances at Anfield dropped significantly towards the end of Hodgson's reign and Werner added: "We were aware of the fans point of view - in a perfect world we wouldn't have had to make the change but we're in a results business."

Très intéressant merci.

C'est un message politique avec finalement très peu de réponse, mais on peut sentir que le board se soucie de l'avenir du club tout en attachant une attention particulière à son passé, ses valeurs et ses traditions.

En tout cas moi j'adhère complètement...

D'ailleurs à la mi-temps du match contre Stoke que je regardais sur la chaîne FSC, nous avons eu droit à un extrait d'un interview fait avec John W Henry (ce passage là parlait de Kenny). L'entretien dans sa globalité et prévu dans l'heure précédent le match contre Chelsea sur cette même chaîne. Je ne sais pas si le diffuseur a prévu de prendre le stream assez tôt mais cela pourrait être fort intéressant...

La Roma va certainement bientôt rachetée par un consortium américain.

Le rapport avec Liverpool? Thomas Di Benedetto qui dirige l'opération fait partie du groupe NESV.

Je ne sais pas si c'est une bonne nouvelle le fait que NESV veuille jouer sur plusieurs fronts...

Liverpool FC’s ex-managing director Christian Purslow said new owners’ bid was ‘bottom of barrel’, court hears

Voila encore un article qui confirme que Christian "Cecil" Purslow est une belle girouette (qui change en fonction du vent).

Il fait le beau au moment de la vente, mais on apprend maintenant, qu'un mois avant la vente, Cecil a écrit dans un email qu'il ne pensait pas qu'NESV avait l'argent pour un nouveau stade, que l'offre d'NESV était à l'extreme fin de la liste (en sous-entendu qu'elle était la pire de ce que Gillett & Hicks attendaient) et que le "background" de financier (hedge fund) de John Henry ne pouvait pas être pire (pour être un candidat "sérieux").

Je vais modifer le nom d'une phrase rendue célèbre par Thierry Roland et et je dirai "Monsieur Purslow, vous êtes un salaud!"

Au contraire c'est une bonne chose non ? Si j'ai bien compris le montant proposé pour le rachat du club par NESV était le moins élevé , mais ca ne veut rien dire c'est même plutôt une bonne chose de savoir qu'il a fait en sorte que H&G prennent le moins d'argent possible sur la revente ...

Puis aussi le montant du rachat n'est pas forcement représentatif des intentions de l'acheteur , pour donner un exemple on a acheté Suarez bien moins cher que Carroll alors que le premier génère plus d'attente que le second ( Comme le montrent les chiffres des ventes de maillots ou Suarez est 30 fois plus vendeur )

Je ne vois pas en quoi c'est une bonne chose quand, un mois avant la vente, Christian Purslow pense que l'offre d'NESV est la moins bonne et que NESV n'a pas le profil idéal recherché.

Ah la effectivement c'est autre chose . Maintenant pourquoi aurait-il accepté ? Il y avait des autres offres qui plus est meilleures , il y a bien une raison ...

Ma théorie, qui vaut ce qu'elle vaut, c'est que Martin Broughton a orchestré le tout. Comme quelqu'un disait l'autre jour, il y avait 5 personne dans le board (Gillett, Hicks, Purslow, Broughton et, sauf erreur, Ayre)

J'ai la vague impression que Broughton a tout de suite compris que Gillett et Hicks étaient des escrocs et qu'ils ne cherchaient qu'à s'en mettre plein les fouilles. Je pense que Broughton a donc géré la vente du club (finalement c'est pour cela qu'il avait été engagé), il a reçu des offres, certaines plus sérieuses que d'autres.

Dans le même temps, Purslow, étant con comme un bite, changeait d'avis comme certains changent de chemise. Je pense que Purslow a longtemps été le "larbin" de Gillett et Hicks, dans le sens où Gillett et Hicks voulaient virer Bénitez et Purslow a fait son petit manège en coulisses pour parvenir à ses fins. Par exemple, je suspecte fortement Purslow d'avoir monter Gerrard & Carragher contre Bénitez en leur faisant croire qu'ils ne gagneraient jamais le titre avec Bénitez. Résultat des courses, certains journalistes ont commencé à écrire que Bénitez avait perdu le vestiaire, alors qu'à mon avis ce n'est que Purslow qui est venu foutre sa merde.

Pour revenir à la vente, je pense que Broughton a vite compris qu'il devait obtenir le vote de Purslow pour obtenir la majorité, il a donc dû convaincre Purslow que l'offre d'NESV était la meilleure pour Liverpool FC et que les autres offres ne tenaient pas la route. Je suspecte Broughton d'avoir fait croire à Purslow qu'il serait un "héros" s'il se rangeait de son côté au lieu de celui de Gillett et Hicks.

C'est ce qui s'est passé quand l'opinion publique vantait le mérite de Purslow dans la vente du club, alors que je ne le suspecte que d'avoir changé de côté comme une girouette.

Le club vendu dans le mois?

Le feuilleton de la vente de l'AS Roma devrait bientôt se terminer. Italpetroli, la holding de la famille Sensi, propriétaire du club, a annoncé mercredi qu'il «a été décidé de procéder à une phase de négociations exclusives avec la société DiBenedetto AS Roma LLC qui a formulé l'offre la plus compétitive qui nous soit parvenue», et ce pour «une période de 30 jours».

Thomas Di Benedetto, homme d'affaires italo-américain et patron de l'équipe de base-ball Boston Red Sox, a fait fortune dans le consulting, l'immobilier et le marketing. Il souhaite «conclure le plus tôt possible» et a assuré que lui et ses «partenaires ont une grande expérience dans le monde du sport et de la finance». La presse italienne évalue la revente du club romain aux alentours des 200 millions d'euros

C est un partenaire et actionnaire de NESV.

MAis le club aurait aucun rapport avec nesv et john henry qui reste le seul actionnaire principal et proprietaire de nesv et donc du lfc.

Un pote qui a un club sa peu etre sympa pour des echanges ou prets..

Christian Purslow relinquishes Liverpool posts

Purslow succeeded Rick Parry as Liverpool's managing director in June 2009

Christian Purslow has stepped down as Liverpool's special adviser and non-executive director.

The 47-year-old had already left his post as managing director following the club's £300m sale to New England Sports Ventures (NESV) in October.

"Now Liverpool is in excellent shape for the future, and in safe hands, it is time for me to concentrate fully on other business interests," he said.

"I look forward to watching Liverpool compete at the highest levels again."

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner added: "We will always be grateful to Christian for his vital contribution to the club during his time as managing director and latterly as special advisor.

"He has played a fundamental role in securing the future of the club and in the sale of Liverpool to new ownership."

Purslow, a fluent Spanish speaker and Anfield season ticket holder, joined Liverpool in June 2009 - succeeding chief executive Rick Parry.

He is a Cambridge graduate with an MBA from Harvard Business School and is also an executive board member and co-founder of private equity firm MidOcean Partners.

Du changement dans le club.

Liverpool FC owners hail new Managing Director Ian Ayre

by Neil Jones, Liverpool Echo

Mar 23 2011

Ian Ayre, right, with Kenny Dalglish and Damien Comolli

LIVERPOOL owners John Henry and Tom Werner have heaped praise on new Anfield Managing Director Ian Ayre after a major global head-hunting exercise led them to the man working right under their noses.

Principal owner Henry and Reds Chairnan Werner have also promoted Damien Comolli to the role of Director of Football as they seek to build a team capable of leading the five times European Champions back to the top both on and off the pitch.

Comolli too has come in for high praise for his talent spotting skills and footballing acumen.

Liverpool’s American chiefs made the double announcement in an official club statement yesterday evening, bringing to an end an exhaustive search process.

Forty-seven-year-old Ayre has been Commercial Director at Anfield since August 2007, earning significant praise for his role in increasing the club’s external revenues, and will now take up the role vacated by Christian Purslow in October.

Lifelong Liverpool fanatic Ayre was born in Kirkdale and grew up in Litherland before joing the Royal Navy and eventually embarking on a high flying business career.

Fenway Sports Group supremo Henry said: “Ian has enormous experience gained from his work in the sports and media businesses over the past 15 years, and we are delighted today to announce this significant appointment.

“We conducted an extensive recruitment search and met with outstanding candidates who sought this role.

“But in the end, after having worked with Ian and other top executives within the club, we realised that Ian had all of the attributes necessary to lead the club forward.

Comolli, 38, was appointed as Director of Football Strategy in November 2010, in one of the first major moves made by Henry following his purchase of the club from George Gillett and Tom Hicks.

He has previously held Director of Football roles at both Tottenham and Saint-Etienne.

Henry said: “In the short time that Damien has been at the Club, he has impressed us greatly with his knowledge of the sport, his work ethic and his incisive intelligence.

“He is a clear thinker and understands exactly what is needed to form a long-term, consistent approach with the philosophy we all share here.

“All of us at Liverpool Football Club who have been working on a day-to-day basis with Damien believe he will be a key contributor for many, many years here as we build a football operation second to none.”

He added: “With these key appointments today, the future of Liverpool Football Club is in very good hands.

"Tom Werner and I are extraordinarily excited to be working with Ian and Damien as we do the things that must be done to move the club forward in the 21st century.”

Promotion pour Comolli

Du galon pour le Frenchie. Damien Comolli, jusqu'à présent responsable de la stratégie de Liverpool, a été promu directeur du football des Reds, un poste qu'il avait déjà occupé à Tottenham, de 2005 à 2008. L'ancien directeur sportif de Saint-Etienne, arrivé à Liverpool en novembre dernier, aura mis peu de temps à gravir les échelons. Artisan majeur des arrivées en janvier des attaquants Luis Suarez et Andy Carroll, il a «impressionné» les propriétaires américains du club «par sa connaissance (du football), son éthique de travail et sa vive intelligence» selon les termes du communiqué du club.
