Michael Edwards has been named head of football at Fenway Sports Group, and Richard Hughes, whose contract with Bournemouth expires, has been announced as the new sporting director for next season and beyond.

Liverpool, which has moved quickly from Jurgen Klopp to a new era, is scrambling to sign its next new director of football. Among several candidates, Xabi Alonso, who was very successful at Anfield as a player, has been mentioned as a major contender.

He has been unmatched in the Bundesliga and has also shown last-minute resilience in the Europa League.

The former Barcelona defender Gerard Pique, who played with the national team, had no doubt that he would be successful as a coach against the former Spanish midfielder, who has transformed the team since taking over last season.

“For sure, I could see he had what it took to be a successful manager,”

“He absolutely loves football. He understands how to play the game and it’s very similar to Sergio Busquets. Busquets is still playing but he will be another incredible coach. Xabi has demonstrated at Bayer Leverkusen why he is so highly regarded.”

“He is having the perfect season in not losing. Let’s see next year what he’s doing. Everyone says Liverpool will be an option after Klopp leaves, so let’s see.”

Reuben Amorim and Julian Nagelsmann are believed to be on the second list of candidates, and if Bayern Munich loses the battle for Xabi Alonso, who is also in the running, they will have to turn their attention to other targets.

Will the former Liverpool midfielder, who had an illustrious career as a player, also win many glories as a manager?
