Edwards rejects Liverpool return

In a rather unexpected update, Michael Edwards is said to have turned down an approach from Fenway Sports Club to return to the club as sporting director.

The 44-year-old left his post at Anfield 18 months ago, bringing to an end his 10-year association with the club.

He was replaced by Julian Ward, who lasted a matter of months in the role before himself deciding to move on, with Jorg Schmadtke taking over from him on a temporary basis.

Incidentally, Ward has been named among a list of candidates for the vacant sporting director position at Man United, as per the Daily Telegraph.

Schmadtke is set to follow departing manager Jurgen Klopp out of the exit door this summer, and it appears work is already underway to sound out the next candidates.
