Christian Purslow looking forward to new Liverpool era


Liverpool's managing director Christian Purslow is adamant that New England Sports Ventures (NESV) are the perfect group to lead the club out of the doldrums and to the upper echelons of the Premier League.

Headed by John W Henry, NESV completed their long drawn-out purchase of the club on Friday when they finally ousted detested American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

Purslow has hailed chairman Martin Broughton's role in seeing the acquisition through and has also moved to pacify the sceptical Reds fans, who feel another American group may not be ideal to pull them out of the mire.

"We've sorted out our financial issues once and for all and we can now get back to football," he beamed.

"It was incredibly civilised and it's just a pleasure to work with people like Martin Broughton. We have the best lawyers in London, it was tranquillity.

"Where your passport comes from isn't a priority.

"The club now has virtually no debt and a lot of our competitors would love to say that."
