Sky Sports reporter confirms Michael Edwards appointment


There has been lot of talks revolving around the appointment of a new CEO in Liverpool. It was in the reports for a few months now that Michael Edwards will be taking over as CEO at Liverpool. Along with Edwards, there are also reports of Richard Hughes taking over as the new Sporting Director. Now, SkySports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has confirmed the appointment of Edwards and Hughes. The change of management in Liverpool comes with the departure of Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season. It will be a challenge to fill the void left by the German after so many years at the club. The first order of business for the management will be to finalise a candidate for the managerial job at Liverpool. And reports suggest that Liverpool are already scouting candidates for the manager job.

Dharmesh Sheth on Michael Edwards appointment

The SkySports reporter said while talking to GiveMeSport,

“The first appointment which will be imminent will be Richard Hughes. We know that he’s left Bournemouth and he will then come in as the sporting director, and then that is when the crucial appointment will have to be made. When we talk about Manchester United, that they’ve got to hit the jackpot with every single transfer, Liverpool have effectively done that in the past few years and hence why they’ve been really successful. Because they’ve had a team and a recruitment team in place for the most part with Michael Edwards involved, until he left, alongside Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team. Now you’ve got a situation where Klopp is leaving.”

Along with the task of recruiting a new manager, they will also have to convince some veteran players to stay. As contracts of several key players are expiring, including Mo Salah, Virgil Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
