The impact of Julian Ward’s decision to leave his role at Liverpool remains to be seen, but Jurgen Klopp was among those eager for him to stay.

“It’s no secret I like the concept of a sporting director,” he told the club’s official website.

According to GOAL‘s Neil Jones, Klopp was “among those who tried to convince Ward to stay,” such was his belief in the current setup.

That has always been the case, with Klopp explaining as much upon the appointment of Edwards as Liverpool’s first-ever sporting director in 2016.

Just months after Michael Edwards exited his role as sporting director, and amid FSG’s attempts to sell the club, it leaves the Reds in disarray.

“It will be interesting now to see how Liverpool move forward,” Jones adds, “and specifically whether the manager will assume even greater responsibility in terms of the club’s recruitment and retention strategy.” The Times‘ Paul Joyce has already described Klopp as having been “more hands-on” when it comes to Liverpool’s recruitment in recent windows.

Whether that will remain the case is unclear, but despite assertions of Klopp’s influence growing when it comes to signings, the manager is undoubtedly more comfortable working alongside a sporting director.
