Ex-Liverpool Chief Executive Ian Ayre Resigns From 1860 Munich After One Month

Ex-Liverpool Chief Executive Ian Ayre Resigns From 1860 Munich After One Month

Ian Ayre‘s adventure in Germany has apparently come to a shuddering halt tonight before it had even properly started, after the former Liverpool chief executive resigned from his post at 1860 Munich after just one month.

A lifelong Liverpool fan, Ayre stepped down after ten years with the Reds in February, during which time he was commercial director, managing director and chief executive, and headed for the Bundesliga 2 side in April.

He arrived with ambitious plans to get one of Germany’s sleeping giants back into the top-flight, but Sunday’s playoff to Jahn Regensburg means 1860 will be playing in the third tier from next season.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Ayre handed in his resignation after the match and will now probably be looking for another job somewhere in UK football once again.

Ayre wasn’t always a popular figure at Anfield, with some Liverpool supporters blaming him for increased ticket prices back in 2016.

Just one month in charge – that’s got to be the shortest tenure for a chief exec ever, right?
