Liverpool have named Christian Purslow as their new managing director. Purslow, a fluent Spanish speaker and Liverpool season ticket holder, will liaise with manager Rafael Benitez on his summer signings.


The 45-year-old will take overall charge until a replacement is found for outgoing chief executive Rick Parry.


Co-owner George Gillett told the club's official website. "There's a lot to get done and Christian will be a valuable addition to the team."


Purslow is a Cambridge graduate with an MBA from Harvard Business School and Gillett said his experience was needed.
