Managing director Ian Ayre believes Liverpool's FA Cup fourth-round tie at home to Manchester United on Saturday provides a chance to correct misconceptions about the club.

The Reds' reputation has taken a battering in some quarters because of the way they handled their defence of Luis Suarez, who was banned for eight matches after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra.

But Ayre thinks Saturday's tie, which is sure to have a massive global audience, can be used to redress the balance, and he said: "Everyone has a role to play, just as we have a role to play at the club. On Saturday it is about the fans representing Liverpool Football Club on the terraces, supporting the team and manager."
