Michael Edwards Return to Liverpool Could See 40-year-old Manager Shortlisted as Potential Candidate to Replace Jurgen Klopp

Before Liverpool begin the process of selecting their next manager following Jurgen Klopp’s departure, they must first address the vacancy for the club’s sporting director.

Despite considering several candidates, the most promising contender currently known is not a newcomer but rather a familiar face.

Rumours have surfaced this week regarding the potential return of Michael Edwards to Liverpool. With an impressive track record and intimate knowledge of the club, Edwards stands out as the top choice for the position. His reappointment could ensure continuity within the organization.

Edwards has demonstrated an aptitude for making astute recruitment decisions, establishing himself as a standout in the realm of sporting directors.

Bringing him back to Liverpool would be a prudent move, potentially one of the best decisions made by FSG in recent years.

If Edwards does indeed make a comeback, Liverpool may find themselves with an additional candidate for the managerial role. This candidate would likely be someone with previous coaching experience at Liverpool and a close familiarity with Edwards.

Additionally, Wolverhampton are currently positioned one point away from securing a European spot in the Premier League, surpassing both Chelsea and Newcastle United.

Previously, O’Neil was involved in coaching at Liverpool. As reported by The Telegraph, his affiliation with Liverpool stemmed from a recommendation by Michael Edwards.

Their professional connection dates back to 2003 when they first crossed paths at Portsmouth, where O’Neil served as a player and Edwards as an analyst. Their bond formed during this time has endured over the years.

Looking ahead, considering O’Neil’s recent accomplishments, should Edwards return to Liverpool, O’Neil could emerge as a potential contender.

Their enduring professional relationship and O’Neil’s demonstrated success at the highest level of the Premier League make him a viable option.
