Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton has defended his role at the club and insisted that he will only give of his best for the Anfield side. Broughton has seen his position questioned by Reds fans since he settled into the job of chairman, not least because of his high profile as a Chelsea fan.

Asked whether he could assure the supporters that he would only act in the best interests of Liverpool, Broughton told the club’s official website: "Absolutely. I think it’s very clear, as a chairman you have certain fiduciary duties, you are committed legally to doing your best for the club. Frankly, for my reputation, I wouldn’t do anything else."

Broughton also confirmed that he was influential in the appointment of new manager Roy Hodgson, stating that Kenny Dalglish and Christian Purslow reduced the shortlist to two names, which he then considered with Purslow, before finally making the decision to go with the former Finland coach.
