The Right Man
Regime changes are very delicate things in football – and not restricted to managers. David Gill’s retirement as CEO in 2013 has been as impactful as Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure the same year at Manchester United, while Arsenal’s current woes may be rooted in David Dein’s absence in the boardroom. The men in suits are crucial to shaping a club’s vision – so nailing the right man for the job is essential.
It seems that Liverpool have got themselves a suitable replacement for outgoing CEO Ian Ayre in Peter Moore. The ex-President of SEGA also served as the VP for Microsoft overseeing the development of the X-Box console, and when rivals PlayStation sent him a farewell message, he showed just how dedicated he is to the Liverpool cause.
Replying to a Tweet from Playstation, Moore commented that he would enjoy seeing their adverts on the sidelines when Liverpool play in the Champions’ League next season. The Reds have not yet clinched a berth yet, but the positivity shown by their new CEO would go down well with supporters.
The Anfield side are currently in the thick of a heated top-four race, but in Moore they might just be looking forward to good times. Game On.
