Moores calls for unity after White exit

Liverpool chairman David Moores has called for everyone at Anfield to pull together in the wake of director Noel White's resignation for publicly speaking out against the direction the club is heading in.

White quit yesterday after confirming he was the unnamed director who had been quoted in a national newspaper last week questioning manager Rafael Benitez's leadership and transfer dealings.

The outburst cost White his position on the board after 21 years but Moores warned there was no place for taking the club's business outside the walls of Anfield.

'This is very sad for both the club and Mr White, who has been a valuable member of the board for 21 years,' said Moores.

'However, the board considers that the statements made do not reflect its own views and that this is not the Liverpool way of doing business. The proper place for debate is around the boardroom table.

'It is vital that we pull together at all times whether on the field or off it.

'It has to be said that at the first available opportunity on the day the article appeared Mr White was completely honest in telling me that he was responsible for it.

'He recognised that this made his position on the board quite untenable and he did the honourable thing by resigning.'

White was sorry to be leaving but accepted he had no choice.

'For the 21 years I have had the privilege of being a director of this great institution my guiding principle has been to act in the best interests of the club,' he said.

'In view of the controversy caused by comments in a national newspaper, attributed to an anonymous director, and the effect this has had on the chairman, my fellow directors, the manager and many supporters, I feel the honourable course is to resign.

'Indeed, my guiding principle dictates that this is the only course.

'It was never my intention to cause such controversy, nor did I envisage that my remarks would receive such widespread coverage.

'I recognise, however, that I must take responsibility for my actions even though the outcome was not what I intended.'
