Liverpool managing director Christian Purslow has assured England’s 2018 World Cup Campaign team that the New Anfield Stadium will be completed in time to host matches if England’s bid is succesful.
Purslow intervened when the city of Liverpool was, reportedly, almost rejected as a potential host city when the cities were announced yesterday.
Purslow met with the chairman of the bid team, Lord Mawhinney, and provided assurances that the new Anfield will be ready.
Peter Shaw, Liverpool’s assistant executive director said “Our plans remain exactly the same, our intention is to build a new stadium. The financial markets need to be right for the club to move forward on the stadium and in the new year maybe that will happen. A stadium is needed and that stadium will be the new Anfield.”
