A bronze bust of Liverpool Football Club founder, John Houlding has been installed at Anfield.

Supporters will be able to see the statue, which depicts Houlding in his mayoral attire, on 96 Avenue.

The bronze which stands just under 7ft tall, has been created by Liverpool sculptor Tom Murphy, who also created the world famous Shankly statue which sits outside the Kop and has become a landmark in its own right.

Liverpool contact Sevilla to discuss January move for Moreno

Liverpool contact Sevilla to discuss January move for Moreno Liverpool have reportedly made contact with Sevilla to discuss a January move to sign Alberto Moreno. According to Spanish outlet Marca, Moreno is ‘dreaming’ of a return to La Liga and the Reds are looking to help facilitate a move away from Anfield. In a bizarre turn of events, it has been Liverpool who appear to have initiated contact with the Spanish side. The Reds will be keen to offload the player and that is perhaps the reasoning behind their approach. Moreno is out of contract at Anfield at the end of the summer and will not be offered a new deal by the club. Liverpool may look to conclude a deal quickly in January to avoid losing him for nothing in the summer. The player has fallen out of favour at Anfield thanks to the form of Andy Robertson, who has cemented his place as the starting left-back in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“We didn’t have any symbol at Anfield that was a representation of our Founder that our supporters could see and touch and reflect upon. The project of creating the bronze began in our 125th season, 125 years is a long time and it was all started by this man – without him, football on Merseyside certainly wouldn’t be what it is today. I hope our supporters take the time to go and visit Mr Houlding as he looks proudly upon our Main Stand.”

John Houlding (c. August 1833 – 17 March 1902) was an English businessman, most notable for being Lord Mayor of Liverpool, and the founder of Liverpool Football Club. Houlding was a self-made businessman in the city of Liverpool.

Houlding was not only the Founder of the Reds, but he was also a businessman and Lord Mayor of Liverpool from 1897-98. He died in the South of France in 1902 after a lengthy illness.

Creator Tom Murphy said:

“There are very few pictures of John Houlding in existence so I did a lot of research around the style of dress that would have been worn at the time. I was also lucky enough to be able to visit the Town Hall to understand the detail of the mayoral chain which can be seen around his neck. He was a really interesting person to work on and completely different from the Shankly statue.”

Reds can visit see the bronze of John Houlding on 96 Avenue from 9th November. An official unveiling ceremony will be held in the near future.
