Former Liverpool chairman Sir Martin Broughton said he took the club's current principal owner John W. Henry to an Arsenal match at the Emirates Stadium to demonstrate that the Reds should not relocate to a different stadium.

Liverpool first moved into their Anfield stadium in 1892, and it is widely regarded as one of the most historic and atmospheric grounds in the world.

Speaking to the Telegraph, Broughton revealed seeing the effect on the atmosphere that Arsenal's move from Highbury across north London to Holloway caused convinced Henry to stay at Anfield.

"We organised a trip for John (Henry) to the Emirates for a game and the feedback was always how everyone loved the stadium except the Arsenal fans.

They could instantly see why would you throw away 'This is Anfield'?

The Emirates in Stanley Park just did not feel right.

Under the previous ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett there were plans to move Liverpool to a new 60,000 capacity ground in Stanley Park, a proposal which did not go down well with supporters.
