Newly appointed Liverpool FC Managing Director Ian Ayre says the club are making big leaps forward in terms of it’s debt management and turning the club into a profit making business.
Reports for last year’s accounts of the club showed a £20million loss, accounted for by the dark days of previous owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett.
But Ayre says this is starting to come under control.
“As much as we are all aware of the difficult circumstances surrounding these accounts and that period in the Club’s history, everyone in the world can now see just how much has since been achieved,” he told the club’s official website today.
“They are accounts for last season and obviously at that time it was a very different period and a different situation for Liverpool Football Club.”
“I think we have all moved on since then. They very much represent a footnote in that era of the Club’s history.”
“It’s an era that was very well documented and published for all sorts of reasons. But we remain very optimistic.”
“Nobody, whether you’re the Managing Director or anybody else connected with the club, wants to see any report ever that talks about the sort of losses that report talks about, but I think we take comfort and optimism in the direction we’ve headed in since that period.”
