Peter Moore has just replaced Ian Ayre as the new Chief Executive Officer of Liverpool. His appointment is slated to begin in summer succeeding Ayre who left the club last month. As for Ayre, the former CEO of Liverpool is slated to become the general manager for 2.Bundesliga side 1860 Munich.

It is expected that the British business executive will focus more heavily on business rather than football. Michael Edwards has been tasked to work alongside Moore along with Jurgen Klopp on recruitment. Moore has been deemed as a supporter for the Reds at a young age with his Merseyside roots running deep, This Is Anfield reported.

Moore also played in England as a right full-back, No. 2. Moore also became a football coach in the united States after obtaining his bachelor's degree at Keele University. He then went on to finish his master's degree at the California State University. Moore then worked for the French football boot company Patrick and later landed a job with Reebok specializing in football.

Moore later sought a change of scenery and worked with Sega, Dreamcast and Microsoft, his last job being the chief competition officer for EA where he played a key role for the football video game "FIFA 17". While Moore's arrival was announced after the 3-1 loss away to Leicester City, the diehard Red is expected to do wonders for Liverpool FC.

Meanwhile, Moore may no longer be seen fronting EA's E3 conferences. While his time in the video game industry working with Microsoft and Sega may have given him the breath of fresh air, Moore is said to be going back to his roots. It should be noted that even with his stint at Reebok, Moore won a deal with Liverpool that lasted until 2006.

Moore is expected to take up his new role in Liverpool in June. The official club site also revealed that Moore will be reporting directly to the club's owners, Fenway Sports group. Note that the appointment completes a 10 month transition plan by the FSG and finalizes the senior management structure at the club, Game Raven reported. Check out the news below:
