Richard Hughes, Liverpool's newly appointed sporting director, said that “the present and the future are what really excites him” about the club.

Hughes will officially take up the role when he leaves his position as Bournemouth's first team manager at the end of the season.

Hughes was sought out by former Reds sporting director Michael Edwards, who was recently appointed chief football officer at FSG, which owns Liverpool FC.

Speaking to the club's website, he told the club's website: “People rightfully talk about the rich history this organization can be proud of, but it's the present and the future that really excites me. Jurgen Klopp leads an outstanding team and squad and alongside that is a commitment to youth.” The players and their path to the first team are also great.

“I fully understand the expectations and responsibilities that come with taking on this position. This will be my job, working with Michael [Edwards] And lead the football operations team already in place, as well as the wider staff at the AXA Training Centre, to make good decisions.

“That's really what the job entails: you have to make the kind of good decisions that enhance the odds of having a winning team and excite the fans. That's what Liverpool have done well for a very long time and the benefits are there for everyone to see.”
