Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has been urged to resign from the role he has in the Premier League's Club Broadcast Advisory Group.
The move comes after fans and pundits urged the executives from clubs who joined the now-abandoned European Super League to step down from key Premier League sub-committees.
According to Sky Sports, Richard Masters, the Premier League chief executive, contacted executives on Wednesday including Bruce Buck, the Chelsea chairman, and Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal chief executive, to request that they relinquish their roles on the working groups. The other person who was asked to step down was Ferran Soriano, who runs Manchester City.
According to the report, The Premier League is also seeking the removal of the Manchester United and Liverpool executives Ed Woodward and Werner from its Club Broadcast Advisory Group; the former having offered his resignation from his role at United.
