Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre is confident the club have made the right decision in choosing to redevelop Anfield ahead of building a new stadium.

While a new ground in Stanley Park would provide the required 60,000-seat capacity as well as increased hospitality opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities, its cost - estimated at over £300million - is prohibitive.

"The right solution is one that is sustainable and is in the long-term interests of Liverpool Football Club," Ayre said. "It's great that it is hopefully Anfield because I think that's what the majority of our fans want. There are still some steps to take, but we're confident they're the right ones."
