FSG finally to do something at Liverpool that they should’ve done 2 yrs ago

Liverpool

FSG have been faultless since taking in charge of Liverpool back in 2010. The club’s American owners had arrived at Anfield during a volatile time. Roy Hodgson was in charge of the club, Hicks and Gillett had run the Reds resources dry. As lows go this was definitely the darkest period in the club’s history.

Slowly but gradually FSG helped to rebuild the broken foundations. Through trial and error the club’s owners learnt along the way what it meant to own one of the biggest football clubs in the world. And over the last through years it is thanks to FSG’s work as much as Jurgen Klopp’s that the Reds have been able to return to the pinnacle of European football.

One of the smartest recruitments behind the scenes that FSG made was during the beginnings of their venture at the club. In 2011, FSG decided to appoint Michael Edwards as a chief analyst. He would go on to transform the foundations of the club.

One of the biggest mistakes FSG ever made was to let him go two years ago. However, according to the latest reports, they could be about to rectify that.

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that FSG are trying to persuade Michael Edwards to return to the club.

If that is true this would be an incredible move for Liverpool. Edwards played such a key role as a sporting director to rebuild Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool when the German first took charge of the club. Edwards brought in key players like Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

He is renowned in the world of sport as the best in the game. Most importantly he is a Liverpool fan. The truth is FSG shouldn’t have even allowed him to leave Anfield in the first place. Edwards is too valuable to lose. The work he does speaks for itself. So, what FSG are doing now trying to convince him to come back is something they should have done two years ago.

Nonetheless, if they can convince him to return, none of that matters. What’s in the past is in the past. And considering Liverpool are about to embark a transformative period there would be no better man to spearhead that than Edwards himself.
