“No Way”: Richard Keys Shares What “Insiders” Have Revealed to Him About Michael Edwards Ahead of Slot’s Arrival

Now is the perfect moment for Michael Edwards to showcase his expertise once more for Liverpool. With the backing of the fanbase, he’s poised to continue his successful partnership with Jurgen Klopp.

As Klopp prepares to leave, Edwards will team up with Arne Slot, with reports suggesting his move from Feyenoord to the English Premier League is imminent.

This marks a significant leap for the 45-year-old, and he’ll require ample support to navigate this new endeavor successfully.

In this crucial juncture, Edwards, who rejoined the club this season, must rediscover his past brilliance to propel Liverpool forward after Klopp’s departure, especially since no proven manager has been brought in.

Upon his return, there was widespread astonishment, with Richard Keys claiming that there is “no way” he returned without certain assurances that he will be in charge of football matters.

The beIN Sports presenter delved into insights shared by insiders regarding Edwards and his departure from Merseyside two years ago, citing a power struggle as a contributing factor in his exit, detailed in his personal blog.

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) likely had to make a compelling case to persuade him to return, considering that this role is expected to pose his greatest challenge yet.

“In amongst the things I’ve read about him (Slot) so far was a revealing line that ten Slot will not be ‘manager’ at Anfield. He’s going to be ‘head coach’,” wrote Keys.

“Why is that significant? Well – I believe because it cements Michael Edwards’ position as ‘head of football’. Edwards has only recently returned to Liverpool after a two-year absence.

“Perhaps it’s just coincidence he’s back when Klopp is leaving? But I don’t believe it is. Talk to insiders and they’ll tell you he left after a fall-out with Klopp, who ended up running Liverpool from top to bottom. Quite simply – Edwards lost the power struggle.

“There is no way Edwards would’ve returned to the club unless he had assurances about having total control of all football matters. That meant he’d be working with a coach – not a manager. Whether he’s chosen the right one only time will tell.”

From Darwin Nunez to Cody Gakpo, recent transfer decisions have left fans skeptical. The comparison to Liverpool’s current state draws parallels to when Sir Alex Ferguson departed Manchester United, leading to a loss of longevity for the club.

When Ferguson left, Chief Executive David Gill also departed, resulting in a downward spiral in transfers and performances from which the club still hasn’t fully recovered.

However, with Michael Edwards at Liverpool, there’s a sense of stability post-Klopp era, with trust in his ability to recruit the right players for the team to thrive.
