Martin Broughton spoke today to reassure fans of Liverpool FC that Gerrard and Torres will not be sold by the club.
“There is absolutely no reason to sell either Torres or Gerrard,” said the British Airways chairman, brought in last month by the co-owners to oversee the sale of the club.
“I don’t want to sell either of them. Rafa does not want to sell either of them, the club is not looking to sell them,
“We don’t need to do it to pay off any debt.
“Torres is one of the great players and every club would love to have him. We have got him and there is no intention of selling him.”
With Liverpool deep in debt, the need to find wealthy new owners is now urgent.
