Liverpool Appoint New Sporting Director



Liverpool have appointed Jorg Schmadtke as the club’s new sporting director.

Schmadtke, 59, replaces Julian Ward who has vacated the role after 11 years at Anfield.

The German’s most recent position was at Wolfsburg, where he was sporting director until February.

“Jorg will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience into a role in which such qualities can only be beneficial both to him and us,” Liverpool said in a statement.

“Jorg will work with our football operations department as it continues to provide support for [manager] Jurgen Klopp, in keeping with our ongoing endeavour to keep growing and developing the club in all areas.

“At the same time as we welcome Jorg, we must also bid a fond farewell to Julian Ward, who has served us with unstinting diligence, fortitude and energy in a number of roles, the most recent one being sporting director.”
