Edwards to leave & Gerrard to Villa – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool-related news is all about the upper-hierarchy of clubs today – and not just our own at Anfield.


Edwards set to depart in change at the top

A bit of an era comes to an end this summer, with sporting director Michael Edwards confirming that he is leaving the Reds.

One of the most important figures in our total turnaround, Edwards will leave at the end of the campaign when his contract expires, with Julian Ward stepping up to take his place from his current assistant role.

Fans have reacted in unsurprised fashion, simply wishing well for the future a person who has played a pivotal role in the Reds’ success.

Now the work continues without him from the summer onwards – but the success must remain the same!

  • Ousmane Dembele could join Newcastle for free if he doesn’t sign a new contract with Barcelona, reports the Express, and we’re delighted that the outlet has finally worked out that yes, that’s precisely how Bosman transfers work
  • Dusan Vlahovic‘s agent has refused to hold talks with Arsenal over a January move, presumably pointing out that wins over AFC Wimbledon and Watford for a month or two don’t quite propel them back to superclub status. Let’s see how they fare against the Reds after the international break!
