⚽ New Liverpool chief Moore: I trust Edwards transfer market knowledge ⚽



Liverpool’s new chief executive Peter Moore has full confidence in those in charge of their transfer plans.


Moore spoke for the first time this morning about his plans for the club.


“I have been the CEO of a five billion dollar company with 8,500 employees and football’s big business now,” he said.


“The experience and expertise I bring are suited to what my remit is. I’m not disappointed that I’m not involved in the transfer business. The expression that I use is horses for courses.


“I trust Michael (Edwards) implicitly to do a value proposition of a particular player and say, based on the data analytics we have on them and the comparables we have on another player, that is what we go into.


“We have a world class manager that any club in the world would want and what we have to do as a single team is provide the team on the pitch with every resource they need to be successful.


“If you are a business and you think you are perfect, you are screwed. You need to think ‘We can do better here, we can do better there’.


“If you don’t think you can do any better, that is when you get into dangerous territory.”
