Liverpool Football Club announces high-profile exit

Liverpool Football Club's former managing director Christian Purslow has left his role as a special adviser and non-executive director at the Premier League soccer club.

Having redefined his position within the club in October 2010, standing down as Liverpool's managing director after successfully overseeing the sale of Liverpool FC to New England Sports Ventures (NESV), Purslow's latest move ends all affiliation with the club.

Announcing his exit via a statement on Liverpool's official website, Purslow said, "I have been happy to be available to provide support for the new owners during the transitional period since the sale but now Liverpool FC is in excellent shape for the future, and in safe hands, it is time for me to concentrate fully on other business interests. I look forward with pride and excitement to watching Liverpool FC compete at the highest levels once again."

Liverpool Football Club 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 LFC to new ownership."
