Key part of Liverpool’s “project” confirms he is leaving this summer

Liverpool leaders of building on a budget The current Liverpool side is unique in its squad building.

While it may now be the wrong side of its peak, and threadbare in areas, the Juggernaut that won the Champions League and Premier League in consecutive seasons featured several bargain buys, including Andy Robertson from Hull and Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle, after their respective sides were relegated.

Central to that was Michael Edwards, who had a strong hand in transfer policy, as well as sales which saw the likes of Dominic Solanke, Jordan Ibe and Philippe Coutinho all leave for big fees. However, this time may be over.

Liverpool cornerstone departs Now, to make a bad week worse for the Reds, it has been confirmed that they are set to lose their Transfer guru Michael Edwards in the summer, following a decade with the club.

As per Paul Joyce, reliable when it comes to all things Liverpool:

“Michael Edwards has confirmed that he will leave his role as Liverpool’s sporting director at the end of the season.”

So, how will the Reds look to move on? Well, as per the same source:

“He will be replaced by Julian Ward, who was appointed assistant sporting director in December 2020 and has already been working with Edwards to ensure a smooth transition.”

In an open letter to the fans, Edwards wrote:

“To be part of this club during this period has been a privilege due to the people I have been fortunate enough to work with and the success we have enjoyed.

“I had always planned to cap my time at the club to a max of 10 years. I’ve loved working here, but I am a big believer in change. I think it’s good for the individual and, in a work setting, good for the employer, too. Over my time here we have changed so many things (hopefully for the better) but someone new brings a different perspective, new ideas and can hopefully build (or change) on the things that have been put in place beforehand.

“Julian has been building up the skill set for this role for many years. Last year, he took on the role of assistant sporting director and over the past 12 months he has been introduced to other facets of the role that are vital to its success. I believe he is ideal for the role.

“Over the coming season I will continue to support him as we complete the leadership transition.”

Just how much will Liverpool miss him this summer?
