Liverpool’s Director of Communications Gets the Boot

By Community | May 11, 2012

Liverpool FC’s reshuffle of their executive staff has continued after their director of communications Ian Cotton has parted ways with the club after 16 years of service following Sunday’s final game of the season at Swansea City.

Owners Fenway Sports Group released a statement today saying Cooton (left of picture) agreed to leave by mutual consent.

The announcement of Cotton’s departure follows the axing of director of football Damien Comolli last month as the club look to rebuild after a poor first full season under the ownership of Fenway Sports Group.

Reds managing director Ian Ayre said: “We would like to thank Ian for the important contribution he has made to the club during his long career here.

“He has played a key role as a member of the executive team in managing our relationships with key external stakeholders in the media and in the community. We wish Ian every success in his future career.”

Cotton added: “It has been a privilege to be at Liverpool FC for the last 16 years. I would like to thank everyone I have worked with for all their support during that time and wish this great club all the best for the future.”

Liverpool have had a below par season by their standards, sitting eighth place in the Premier League table and even though they lifted the Carling Cup back in February, the season has not pleased American owner John W Henry.
