Liverpool sporting director Julian Ward will leave the club at the end of the season after just a year in his new role.

Ward’s predecessor Michael Edwards had only officially left the club in May this year, and his replacement also departing represents a ‘significant blow,’ say The Times.

The Times claim that more of a factor than Ward’s departure will be Dortmund’s price tag, as well as Liverpool’s chances of retaining Champions League football, with the side currently seven points off of the Premier League’s top four.

Ward has been with Liverpool for a decade, and after a transfer of power from Edwards began, the current sporting director was credited with the signings of Luis Diaz from Porto and Darwin Nunez from Benfica, as well as securing a new contract for Mohamed Salah.

Headlining those plans is Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham, with the Reds competing with the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid for the England superstar’s signature.

The Times claim FSG are disappointed by the news, but believe Ward’s reasoning of wanting a break is valid and do not expect him to take a job elsewhere.

Ward wants a break from football, much like Edwards, who has been approached by a number of clubs since leaving Anfield, including Chelsea, but has turned down all advances.
