Parry aims to remain in football after Liverpool exit

Outgoing Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry wants to maintain his involvement in football and the European game.

Outgoing Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry wants to maintain his involvement in football and the European game.

The 54-year-old will leave Anfield at the end of the season, and told Bloomberg: "Do I think I (still) have something to offer? Yes. I think it is inconceivable I will not have something to do with the game."

He is also a board member of the European Club Association who need to find a replacement for former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon, who resigned in January.

Parry would like to stay on until the end of his Liverpool tenure and would be interested in remaining on the ECA board "under the right circumstances". For that to happen, he would need to be affiliated to another of the group's 137 member clubs.

He said: "The organisation has real potential. It is fledgling but it is a kind of new beginning towards a better relationship (with football's authorities)."

Parry confirmed that he has no plans to leave his Liverpool post early.

He said: "I am staying as long as the owners want me and that is until the end of this season. I have got no plans to leave earlier than that."
