Around this time last year, Michael Edwards made his departure from Liverpool officially.
The plans of Michael Edwards after leaving Liverpool
The legendary sporting director finished the previous campaign with the Reds, but his tenure at Anfield came to an end during the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
A lot of people are asking what will happen to Edwards now that Julian Ward has taken his post.
Edwards won’t be returning to the game anytime soon, according to Neil Jones in a Redmen TV interview.
In fact, the writer said that he spoke to Edwards after the loss in the Champions League final in Paris and that he had been informed that the Sporting Director was considering taking a break from the game.
A well-deserved break?
Edwards deserves a lengthy vacation from football more than any other sporting director in the world.
This man has more than demonstrated his skill and value in the game. He developed probably the best Premier League side of all time from scratch.
Edwards has earned himself a respite after years of hard work at Liverpool under extreme pressure and intensity. Of course, whenever he returns, he’ll have no lack of offers, but it’s unclear when that will be.
The term is “hiatus.” The reporter is aware of the appeal since Edwards is known as the player-selection expert who helped Liverpool change for the better, but this undersells Liverpool’s organisational capabilities.
Edwards probably always intended to take a reasonable vacation from football. After the Champions League final, he himself stated such to the reporter. The journalist wished him luck for whatever came next.
Upon asking, Edwards:
“Well, what comes next is a holiday, a long holiday.”
Michael Edwards, who spent 11 years at Anfield, is recognized with being a major contributor to the development of the team that has been the club’s most successful in a generation. The Reds won the Champions League under his direction as Sporting Director in 2018, and a year later, they ended a 30-year title drought in the Premier League.
