In April 2017, Andy Kelly and Neil Jones met former Liverpool chairman Sir Martin Broughton to talk about his time at Anfield.

In a 90 minute interview, Broughton reveals:

  • RBS would have been prepared to put Liverpool FC in administration rather than refinance Hicks and Gillett 

  • He didn't sack Rafa Benitez - and didn't want him to go

  • he kept FSG interest in buying LFC away from Hicks and Gillett until absolutely necessary 

  • the Liverpool board was split on whether to sell to FSG or another bidder 

  • Roy Hodgson took the Reds job knowing he could be sacked within weeks of his appointment

A must listen for Liverpool fans.
