‘Peter Moore’ is a name we will get very used to, as he’s the new CEO of Liverpool, the man who, in his own words, will be the club’s ‘face’ when needed, allowing Jurgen Klopp to focus on his primary job.
He made a point that it was taxing on him to be the face of the club. My job is to let him focus on what’s on the pitch and then let me take responsibility for what’s off the pitch and be the face of the club where it’s appropriate
Moore told reporters at Anfield, referring to Klopp’s expressed fatigue in dealing with way too many things at the club, ever since the former CEO, Ian Ayre, left in February.
Jurgen is still going to do all his news conferences, and there will be a lot more of them hopefully next season, but I want him to do what Jurgen Klopp does better than any other manager in the world in my estimation, which is to build and motivate a world-class team
Moore added. The new CEO also talked about how Liverpool will act in the transfer period, underlining that the club does have the opportunity to spend big, but above all, they will spend ‘smartly’.
This is not about if Chelsea spend a pound then we have to spend a pound regardless of the quality of the player we’re looking at. This is less about an arms race for spending as much money as we can, it’s more about spending smartly. There are tremendous resources that are available for this club here. Our focus is to buy the right players, get the right value, strengthen the squad
Moore, a lifelong Liverpool supporter himself, said.
