After it was rumoured that Liverpool were looking to enhance their scouting work with a senior member of staff at Real Madrid, the Merseyside Reds have totally dismissed those suggestions.
The Daily Telegraph had reported that several Premier League clubs that included Liverpool, Everton and Chelsea, were interested in Los Blancos’ chief scout, Juni Calafat.
Juni Calafat is highly regarded at the Santiago Bernabeu, and any approach won’t be seen upon favourably, however, the Liverpool Echo report that this won’t be from the Merseyside Reds.
Furthermore, the newspaper states that there won’t be an approach in the future either.
The club remain delighted with their current scouting set up, and suggest that such an appointment isn’t in keeping with what sporting director, Michael Edwards, would desire for that area of the club.
It’s difficult to understand why any changes would be discussed in any event, given that Jurgen Klopp’s side are the reigning European champions and are about to win their first-ever Premier League.
Clearly, their scouting department are doing something right!
