Fabrizio Romano Drops Fresh Claim on Liverpool Pursuit of New Sporting Director

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Liverpool hold a deep appreciation for Richard Hughes, the technical director of Bournemouth.

This claim arises amid the backdrop of Fenway Sports Group’s reported interest in Michael Edwards, a pursuit that may not materialise as desired.

“From what I am hearing, Richard Hughes at Bournemouth is really appreciated by people at Liverpool,” the Guardian journalist spoke on the Here We Go podcast.

“But we have to see who will be the man they decide to be the new face of their project.

“At the moment, it’s just about appreciation. Richard Hughes and people at Bournemouth are doing a special job, but also it’s difficult to convince Michael Edwards. He never showed any signal of saying yes to this project, but Liverpool will try once again in the next days/hours to make it happen.

“In case they can’t make it happen, early March they will move on and start a different kind of conversation for something else.

“I think this month, March, is going to be crucial for Liverpool to make some changes and have a new board in place, and then to decide on the manager.”

It is currently known that the ex-sporting director has no desire to return to frontline football.

However, he might be persuaded to consider a position with significantly more control over football operations.

From start to finish, the Cherries seem to be efficiently utilising their resources and handling recruitment.

It’s undoubtedly comforting to have a familiar figure like Edwards present to soften the impact of Jurgen Klopp’s imminent departure.

Nevertheless, a reunion with Edwards seems unlikely at this juncture. Therefore, it’s imperative for the club to swiftly finalise a new sporting director appointment.

Losing out on Xabi Alonso due to procrastination in a futile chase would be highly embarrassing. Fortunately, it seems that progress will be made swiftly now that March has arrived.
