Dalglish continues praise for Purslow

Liverpool legend and now club ambassador Kenny Dalglish says the club’s Managing Director Christian Purslow “deserves a pat on the back” after the Reds clinched an £80million shirt sponsorship deal with banking giants Standard Chartered.

In the light of the news, Reds boss Rafa Benitez revealed this morning how he has a very good and productive working relationship with Purslow, who joined the club earlier this year following Rick Parry’s resignation as Chief Executive.

And now Dalglish has continued the praise for Purslow, adding, “I know as a managing director you are judged on many things.

“Christian Purslow and the club’s commercial director Ian Ayre have to take a huge pat on the back for getting this record shirt sponsorship deal into the football club.

“It shows we have men determined to push the club forward in the right direction.

“And it illustrates the standing of Liverpool Football Club that a company the size of Standard Chartered Bank have come to put their name on our shirts. It’s fantastic news.”
