Liverpool chief Parry excited about the club’s future

Parry said: “There was a lot of brainstorming and good ideas to come out of that.

“There’s no intention of copying everything they do in America because it’s different. The nature of the sport is different, the nature of people who attend events is different and the culture is different.

“But, undoubtedly, there are things they do phenomenally well which we can learn from. The quality of arenas in the states is by and large truly inspiring.

“The attitude of the new owners is so far very much one of telling us what they can do and saying if we think it’s of benefit, do it, but if it’s not right for the club, don’t. That’s encouraging for us.

“You have to be open minded and go into this with the attitude of hearing good ideas and thinking how much we can benefit.

“At the same time, there’s tremendous respect for the values we have here.

“It’s a balance of being modernising without undermining the traditions which really matter. It’s a genuinely exciting time. They’ve a lot of energy and good ideas.

“There will be a lot of change, but I wouldn’t see it as a revolution. It’s about preserving the things which are good and building upon them. As ever, the first priority is success on the pitch. That unites everybody.”
