Chief Rick Parry To Leave Liverpool

As relationships continue to break down at Liverpool, the club have confirmed that Rick Parry will leave...

Following reports suggesting that Liverpool's long-serving chief executive Rick Parry will leave Anfield by mutual consent at the end of the season, the club have confirmed the rumours.

It's been fraught behind the scenes for some time on Merseyside, with the Liverpool Echo suggesting that Parry has either lost a transfer policy 'power struggle' with Reds tactician Rafael Benitez - himself constantly tipped for the chop - or has failed to find a suitable working relationship with 'Pool co-owner Tom Hicks.

Parry has been at the club since 1998, but he was famously labelled a failure by Hicks, one half of the botched Hicks-George Gillett partnership.

Hicks has stated via the club's official site, "Rick's commitment to Liverpool Football Club is epitomised by his desire to ensure that this transitional period is managed efficiently. We are grateful to him for his help and he'll remain a friend to the club."

Gillett added, "I would like to thank Rick for his significant service to the club and the assistance he has given us since we joined Liverpool. He has been integral to the club's success over the past decade and leaves with our best wishes for the future."

Parry himself said, "I have had 12 very exciting years at Liverpool and am extremely proud of what has been achieved by the club over that period. We have supporters who deserve success.

"It has been a privilege to serve the club and, as a lifelong supporter, I wish the owners, Rafa, the players and the wonderful staff all the very best for the future."

It is thought that Parry has been working on a severance package for the last few weeks.
