Liverpool sporting director Julian Ward is to leave his role at the end of the season.
WHAT IS GOING ON? The 41-year-old succeeded Michael Edwards in the position in the summer, but he has told the Reds administration he will retire at the conclusion of the current season.
Epl247 is aware that the decision has caused surprise and disappointment within Liverpool, but Ward has stated that he plans to take a break from football and that he has no imminent plans to take on a new position.
Liverpool has no qualms about his moral character or integrity, and as a result, they are confident in his capacity to perform the job until the end of the current campaign.
