Liverpool Begin Search For Purslow Replacement

New England Sports Ventures (NESV) have appointed headhunters Spencer Stuart to assist them in their search for Liverpool's new chief executive. Christian Purslow stepped down as the club's managing director last month following the takeover by John Henry's consortium despite remaining at Anfield in an advisory role, prompting a search for his successor. Several names have been mooted as Purslow's potential replacement, including ex- Football Association chief and Liverpool fan Brian Barwick as well as former Arsenal vice chairman David Dein Spencer Stuart were responsible for recommending Ivan Gazdis to the North Londoners to become their chief executive as well as recruiting Richard Scudamore in the same role within the Premier League's hierarchy. NESV principal owner John Henry and newly-appointed chairman Tom Werner will oversee the process and hope to appoint a successor in the early 2011.
