Liverpool’s co-owner Tom Hicks has said that Rick Parry’s time at Anfield has been a “disaster”.
From Sky Sports:
We have fallen so far behind the other top clubs. The new stadium should have been built three or four years ago.
We have two sponsors, maybe three. We should have 12 or 15. We are not doing anything in Asia the way Manchester United and Barcelona are.
We have a tremendous number of fans in Asia. So we have got the top brand in the world of football, but we just don’t know how to commercialise and get the money for it to use to buy great players.
Rick needs to resign from Liverpool football club. He’s put his heart into it, but it is time for a change.
You can add a Champions League trophy, FA Cups, a place in this year’s Champions League semi-finals, qualification for the Champions League for the last goodness only knows how many years to that list as well and oh – how about being the eighth richest club in the world?
The terrible events that happened at Hillsborough 19 years ago were a disaster. This however is just pathetic internal politics, and in the week of the anniversary of the disaster you would expect an ounce more tact and decency to come out of the Anfield boardroom.
