Liverpool’s successes in their last years are due to the very good work of Jürgen Klopp of course, but also to that, in the shadows, of Michael Edwards, the sporting director of the Reds from 2011 until last summer. He knew how to find players with high potential who fitted in perfectly with the style of play of the German coach, such as Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah or even Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho.
A sporting director of this talent, free on the market, does not happen every day. Chelsea and Manchester United have understood this, according to The Daily Mail. The Blues and Red Devils are at a crossroads this summer. In London, the management has changed and a replacement for Marina Granovskaia must now be found while in Manchester, the revolution is underway with the arrival of Erik Ten Hag, but this must be confirmed by arrivals.
