First, the Reds' sporting director Julian Ward revealed he'll be leaving Anfield at the end of the season. His exit comes as a surprise as he will have only spent one full term in the role when it ends next summer.

Ward initially joined the Kop outfit in 2012 from Manchester City, but was slowly eased into the position under the tutelage of acclaimed transfer guru Michael Edwards, who previously occupied the role before leaving last November.
