Liverpool’s chief executive officer, Peter Moore, will leave the club next month.

Moore is returning with his wife to the United States, where he worked for 36 years for Sega, Reebok, Microsoft and EA before joining his hometown club in 2017.

Moore will be replaced by managing director and chief commercial officer Billy Hogan.

The American-born Hogan has been instrumental in transforming Liverpool’s commercial fortunes under FSG and negotiated the new kit deal with Nike that starts on Saturday.
