Rick Parry has spoken positively about the takeover of Liverpool Football Club."This is great for Liverpool, our supporters and the shareholders - it is the beginning of a new era for the club," said the club's chief executive.
"They are bringing to the table tremendous and relevant experience, a passion for sport, real resources and a strong commitment to the traditions of Liverpool.
"Their approach represents exactly the sort of genuine partnership that Liverpool has been seeking over recent times.
"We know that George and Tom want a long-term relationship with Liverpool and that they also understand the importance of investing in our success both on and off the field.
"They have made clear their intention to move as quickly as practicable on the financing and construction of our proposed new stadium at Stanley Park and also to support investment in the playing squad.
"This has been an important time for the club. We now have the right partners for the future. I am absolutely certain we have now ended up in the right place, with owners who will help the club succeed and prosper."
