Liverpool is one of the forerunners in data analysis in football. A whole research department dedicated to thorough assessments of potential transfer targets brought in during Edwards’ tenure.
Ward was named assistant sports director in December 2020. And has taken a more hands-on approach this season. He prepares to take over as head coach when his mentor steps down next month.
