Wigan Athletic chairman Dave Whelan has questioned the culture at Liverpool.

Whelan is disappointed that there is no presence within the Reds boardroom on matchday.

“Sometimes it is disappointing when you go into a club, like Liverpool last season, and there is not a soul in the boardroom,” he told the Daily Express.

“Eventually, two or three lads came in, including the one who works for the BBC, Alan Hansen, to represent Liverpool and you think, ‘Where has the heart and soul gone out of this football club?’

“There are so many foreign owners that those qualities have gone out of quite a few clubs."
