There is a bit of good news this morning for Liverpool fans following the heartache of the defeat to Manchester United last night, we are getting closer to starting work on the redevelopment of Anfield according to Liverpool MD Ian Ayre. “Huge strides” have been taken to start work on making Anfield a 60 000 seater stadium according to Ayre.
“Our ambition is to stay at Anfield, and we’re about 90% down the road in securing proprieties affected by redevelopment. I’m reasonably confident, the first phase will be closer to 60,000 capacity.” said Ayre.
The sooner we can tie up all the outstanding legalities the better for the club so we can start building. It will be great to have a 60 000 seater stadium in time for our return to the Champions League. Can you imagine a European night with that many fans at Anfield?
Ayre continued to assure us that the club is in a very good financial position as a whole. “You should always be worried but it is important we manage the debt. The business is headed in a positive direction and we will announce numbers in January next year.
“The business is in excellent health and moving towards a profitable position. The stadium’s redevelopment is easily manageable.”
