Parry wins race to get out of LiverpoolBy: Rob | February 27th, 2009
It seems like everyone is scrambling to get out of Anfield these days. The owners want to sell, even supposedly at a loss, the last week has been plauged by rumours that Rafa Benitez is looking for the door, and now Rick Parry, the club’s Chief Executive, is going to end his 12 year stay at the club.
Parry was at loggerheads with Benitez at the begining of the season about whether they should spend £18m on Gareth Barry, and £20m on Robbie Keane. He also, famously does not get on with club co-owner Tom Hicks.
The suggestion is of course that Hicks has forced him out, 12 months after asking for his resignation in the first place – that time Gillet backed Parry, but now with Rafa Benitez’s future in big doubt, perhaps the two felt the time was right.
Liverpool currently sit second in the league, 7 points behind leaders Manchester United.
