Former Liverpool Chairman David Moores Dies Aged 76

David Moores, a former owner and chairman of Liverpool, passed away at the age of 76.

Between 1991 until 2007, Moores served as Anfield’s chairman. After selling his controlling ownership to Americans Tom Hicks and George Gillett, he was named honorary life president.

The club released a statement expressing its “great sadness” over Moores’ passing.

The statement said, “Everyone at Liverpool FC is thinking of David’s family and friends during this trying time.

In addition to overseeing Liverpool’s 1992 admission into the first Premier League, Moores was in charge when the team won 10 significant championships, including the Champions League in 2005 under manager Rafael Benitez.

The devoted Reds supporter witnessed Liverpool defeat Everton 5-2 in December 2019 at Anfield for the first time in ten years.

Sir John Moores, his uncle, founded the Littlewoods retail conglomerate and twice served as chairman of Everton in the 1960s and 1970s.

Moores hired Roy Evans and Gerard Houllier as managers during his 16-year tenure.

With his wife Marina, Liverpool great Kenny Dalglish sent his sympathies to the Moores family.

He was a devoted Liverpool supporter whose dream came true when he was named chairman, and he did a huge amount to aid the club, Dalglish stated on Twitter.

“All who knew him will miss him a lot. RIP.”
