Brian Barwick received when he left his post as chief executive of the Football Association in December 2008 and £ 1.5 million compared Keith Edelman, Arsenal in the same year.
Parry, who became executive director o
pool in July 1998, announced his resignation from Liverpool in February last year after suffering difficulties in their relationships both with manager Rafael Benitez and Hicks, and finally departed in the summer.
In general, the club’s finances have taken a hit because, in the accounts at July 31, 2009, made an operating loss before tax of £ 16 million – compared to pounds 10.2million profit last year.
Kop Holdings, the company set up by Hicks and Gillett to buy the club, continues to run up more debt and annual interest payments on loans contracted to finance the purchase increased by £ 3.6million to £ 40.1million.
The group recorded a loss before taxation of £ 54.9million – £ 14 million from 2008.
