Things couldn’t be going any better for Liverpool on the pitch, but their board is set for a shake-up in the coming weeks.

The Reds are set to appoint their first ever director of football in Michael Edwards, a man who is already part of Jurgen Klopp’s backroom team.

Directors of football are always delicate matters – plenty of managers, famously Harry Redknapp, won’t work with them because of their interference.

However, according to the Mirror, Klopp actually asked for the appointment to be made, as he always worked alongside one during his managerial days in Germany.


The 49-year-old also believes it will take the pressure off him by reducing his workload, though he’ll still be given the final say on transfers.

Edwards has previously worked as Head of Performance Analysis at Tottenham, but this will be his first time as a director of football.

If he and Klopp can make it work, it looks like the Liverpool machine is only becoming more well-oiled by the day.
