Former Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre has left his role as 1860 Munich's general manager after a little more than a month in the position.

Ayre departed Anfield in February but the 54-year-old, who started his new job in April, has resigned following the club's relegation to the third tier of German football.

That drop came after a play-off defeat to Jahn Regensburg, but Ayre handed his resignation in before the game.

A club statement read: "The publication of this report was withheld, in order not to burden the team for the important game against Regensburg."

Ayre spent 10 years at Liverpool but was replaced by Peter Moore.
