Liverpool’s new owners, New England Sports Ventures, have announced the appointment of two new members of the club’s board.
David Ginsberg and Michael Gordon now sit alongside co-owners John Henry and Tom Werner.
Ginsberg is one of the two vice-chairman of NESV, whilst Gordon is an investor.
John Henry can’t make the game due to illness, but sent this message for the club staff and fans:
“Sunday promises to be a special day at Anfield in more ways than one. I’ll be watching the game from home and although I have only been here for a few days, I already miss Anfield.
“We are hard at work setting a course for the future including the search for a chief executive officer. I wish the club and the fans all the best for the match against Blackburn.”
Sam Kennedy, the chief operating officer for the Boston Red Sox – also owned by NESV – will also be in attendance tomorrow.
