“Until I read this”, the Sky Sports pundit expresses frustration upon learning about Edwards’ plans at Liverpool…



Liverpool’s football CEO, Michael Edwards, has recently disclosed his intention to explore the potential of forming a partnership with another club.


As the Reds’ new chief executive, Edwards has been entrusted with the responsibility of identifying a second club that can contribute to Liverpool’s global talent pool.


With great enthusiasm, the 44-year-old embraces the concept of multi-club ownership as a crucial aspect of Liverpool’s future endeavors at Anfield.


However, Kevin Hatchard, a commentator for Sky Sports, has expressed reservations about this idea, advising Liverpool to steer clear of such partnerships.


Liverpool should avoid getting involved in multi-club ownership, as per commentator Kevin Hatchard, following the appointment of Michael Edwards as the new chief executive of football. Edwards, previously the club’s sporting director, will now oversee football operations amidst a period of change at Anfield.


Liverpool’s primary focus will be finding a replacement for Jurgen Klopp, who will depart the club after the 2023/24 season due to fatigue. Despite this, the Reds remain competitive in the title race and have the opportunity to secure the Europa League and FA Cup in addition to the Carabao Cup by the end of the season.


Edwards is enthusiastic about the potential multi-club model at Liverpool. The former sporting director will play a significant role at Anfield.


According to The Times’ Paul Joyce, Edwards will be returning to Liverpool as the chief executive of football. He will take over the day-to-day decision-making responsibilities from Mike Gordon.


Edwards, who rejected offers from Chelsea and Manchester United, will work on attracting global talent from a second club and restructuring the footballing hierarchy at Liverpool.


In his statement, Edwards highlighted the importance of expanding the football portfolio to remain competitive. However, Sky Sports commentator Kevin Hatchard expressed concerns about the multi-club model, stating that it should be avoided in football ownership.


Hatchard emphasized his opposition to Liverpool’s involvement in such a model.

The Reds’ top executive is said to have a potential sporting director in mind

Liverpool is also in need of a replacement for sporting director Jorg Schmadtke, who left Anfield after the 2024 winter transfer window.


According to journalist Ben Jacobs speaking to GIVEMESPORT on 2nd March, Edwards may prioritize hiring Richard Hughes for the position. The 44-year-old has announced his intention to depart from his current role as technical director at AFC Bournemouth by the end of the 2023/24 season.


The same reporter has informed GIVEMESPORT on 12th March that Liverpool is not concerned about Bayern Munich in the competition to secure Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso as Jurgen Klopp’s potential successor on the touchline. The Spanish coach has made a name for himself as one of the most promising managers in European football and is on track to lead Leverkusen to their first-ever Bundesliga title this season.
