2024/03/20 12:35

Liverpool have announced the hiring of Richard Hughes as their new sporting director from the end of this season. 

Hughes joins Liverpool after a decade-long tenure at Bournemouth, serving as their technical director.

His official start date in his new role is set for June 1, coinciding with the end of his time at Bournemouth. 

In his new role, Hughes will oversee transfer negotiations and contract dealings, closely collaborating with the club's recruitment team as he takes over this responsibility from the departed Jorg Schmadtke.

Working within a newly restructured hierarchy, Hughes will join Michael Edwards, the football chief executive within FSG, alongside chief executive Billy Hogan, head of recruitment Dave Fallows, and chief scout Barry Hunter.

Hughes, alongside Edwards, will be responsible for the appointment of Liverpool's next manager, with Xabi Alonso and Portuguese manager Ruben Amorim among the leading contenders.
