Liverpool are mourning the death of former chairman David Moores

Former Liverpool chairman David Moores died on Friday aged 76. He was the English club’s top manager from 1991 until 2007, when he sold his stake and became honorary president.

During his tenure, Moores experienced the conquest of ten major titles, including the Champions League in 2005 against Milan on penalties after being 3-0 down at half-time and the UEFA Cup against Alavés (5-4). , and he hired Roy Evans, Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benítez as coaches.

});

In 2007, due to the rapid growth of English clubs in financial terms, with the example of Roman Abramovich’s Chelsea and Manchester United bought by the American Malcolm Glazer, he decided to step aside so that foreign financing could enter.

Liverpool was sold to foreign businessmen

In this way, American businessmen George Gillett and Tom Hicks took over Liverpool in 2007 until they sold it to their compatriot John Henry, owner of Fenway Sports Group, in 2010.

Moore in December 2019 returned to Anfield for the first time in ten years to see Liverpool win 5-2 in the Mersey derby against Everton.

Moores died this Friday morning at his home, just a few weeks after the death of his wife, Marge, to whom he was married for 39 years.
