Broughton on bumper bonus to find Liverpool buyer

Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton is on a bumper bonus to find the club a new owner.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool chairman Broughton has the incentive of a £500,000 bonus if the troubled Barclays Premier League club is sold during his time at the helm.

British Airways boss Broughton's deal with the club's despised owners, Tom Hicks and George Gillett, runs until next April, which is now looking a more realistic deadline to find a buyer than next month's bank loan time limit of October 15.

Bank and Liverpool sources say the lucrative terms of Broughton's deal, which are in line with other City chairman incentives, will in no way affect his judgement in the hunt for suitable long-term owners of Liverpool.
