According to the Times Liverpool’s chief executive Rick Parry has leapt all over the rumours that American owner fat-cats George Gillett Jr and Tom Hicks, have had a series of slanging matches – Parry is denying this point blank. And whenever anyone denies anything point blank, jumping on a story like a ravenous animal – one suspects that there might be some sliver of truth to the original tale…
Yesterday Parry told supporters that:
â€œI have just spent a couple of days with Tom and George, both of them were in good spirits, working hard together on their future plans for the club. I donâ€™t normally comment on these things, but on the basis of what I have just seen, the story in one of the Sunday papers claiming there was some sort of problem between the two couldnâ€™t be wider of the mark. Itâ€™s absolute nonsense.â€
Methinks you doth protest too much Mr Parry! Trouble in paradise for Liverpool’s Yank supremos or press waffle?
