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.

Ginsberg, Gordon and Werner will all be in attendance at Anfield on Sunday for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Blackburn Rovers.

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.
