Liverpool have announced their new chairman will be Tom Werner

The Liverpool football club announced that Tom Werner will be their new chairman. Werner holds a similar position with club owners New England Sports Ventures.
In a widely expected move Werner will officially start on December 1, although previous chairman Martin Broughton effectively ended his involvement after last weekend's victory over West Ham.

"I want to pay tribute to Martin Broughton and the magnificent job he has done for Liverpool FC," said NESV principal owner John Henry, who obviously has a very close working relationship with Werner. He added: "He was appointed in difficult circumstances and faced challenging times yet he always focused on doing what was in the best long-term interests of the club. Let's hope that Liverpool will now rise to the top.
