Goodbye to Liverpool's 'Monchi'

Michael Edwards' days seem to be numbered at Liverpool, according to 'The Athletic'. The Reds athletic director ends contract this year.


Jürgen Klopp has just started the season at Liverpool and is already at risk of losing one of the most important men to him at Anfield. Michael Edwards, sports director and one of those most directly responsible for the relaunch of the reds, would have told the club, according to The Athletic, that he will not renew his contract at the end of this season to seek new challenges, although at the moment it is not known from any other team that may have seduced you with an offer.

Since he arrived in 2016, Edwards has managed, with his policy of transfers, discards and renewals, to lift an eternally candidate Liverpool to the position of champion. Among other things, since their arrival the club from the city of the Beatles has managed to break a streak of 30 years without lifting a Premier League and conquer Europe again with a Europa League and a Champions League. Not forgetting that he was a finalist in European competitions two other times and that he has come close, more than once, to lifting another league.

Kloop, who has worked with him side by side, has been able to benefit from the arrivals of Salah, Alisson, Fabinho, Robertson and van Dijk, among others, and all this has been possible thanks to sales such as that of Coutinho to Barcelona for about 150 million euros. Edwards, who moves like a fish in water in the shadows, has been the sports director who has coordinated in the offices the miracle of Kloop on the field of play.Although he has already communicated to the club that he will not renew and will leave at the end of the season, always of course in a friendly way, at Anfield they do not renounce the possibility of convincing him to stay, although in 2020 they already placed him as an assistant to Julian Ward, arrived from City in 2012, to learn from him.
