Liverpool FC former player will soon join Manchester City: Reports

About Football Express UK

The 37-year-old is allegedly ready to leave Eddie Howe’s team. Just 14 months after leaving Liverpool FC, according to the Daily Mail.

Mark Leyland, a former Liverpool analyst, is expected to be hired away from Newcastle United. He will take on a new position at City Football Group and Manchester City.

Leyland, a first-team coaching analyst for the Magpies, was courted away from the Reds a little more than a year ago. The north-east club tried to assemble a team for the future.

But after making a “great impact” and contributing significantly to the recent victory at St. James’ Park, he is now scheduled to leave the organisation at the end of the current campaign just like he did for Liverpool FC.

He has been hired by Manchester City authorities for a brand-new international post. This post will cover every club in the City Football Group.

Mark Leyland’s tenure at Liverpool FC

Leyland joined Liverpool FC in 2013 following stints at Everton and Burnley.

He went on to play a significant role in Michael Edwards’ data and analytical group, which was credited with a huge part of Jurgen Klopp’s Reds’ success. Liverpool achieved great success during that period.

The Merseyside team made cautious not to get in the way of him when Newcastle approached him last year.

“Mark was here longer than me,” Klopp said.

“He was an incredibly important member of our staff, with his post-match analysis and the analysis he did with the players. He is a top guy.”

Leyland is moving up in his career barely 14 months after leaving Liverpool FC.

Given that he spent seven and a half years with the Reds, everyone at Anfield will be wishing him well.
