Christian Purslow relinquishes Liverpool posts

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.
