Liverpool appoint Jörg Schmadtke as sporting director for summer transfers | Liverpool

Liverpool have appointed Jörg Schmadtke as their sporting director in readiness for the summer transfer window.

The 59-year-old, who was managing director at Wolfsburg until February, has signed a short-term deal to succeed Julian Ward, who is leaving after only 12 months in the role but 11 years of working for Liverpool.

Schmadtke and Ward will work together before the transfer window opens in a fortnight to ensure an orderly handover. Work on potential signings is well under way and Schmadtke will oversee the completion of deals, with at least two midfielders expected to arrive.
