McManaman urges Liverpool to try for Edwards: I just spoke to him

Liverpool legend Steve McManaman has urged the club's owners to bring Michael Edwards back.

The club's ex-sporting director does not want to work in the same role as he did before.

However, there have been British media suggestions that he could come back in a new position.

"They should try and bring Michael back! Of course, they should," McManaman told TNT Sports.

"Funnily enough, I spoke to him the other day about it as well because he lives by me and I see him regularly.

"I don't know in what capacity they would want to bring him back. I don't know. I think Michael has moved on from just being a sporting director. He hasn't said that to me personally, but he couldn't just go back to the same role that he was doing for a long time.

"I think he'd need more. I don't know whether he needs a new challenge. In past comments he's made, it's always the case that he needs a new challenge.

"The same with Julian Ward as well. I know Jules very well. It would be great if they could come back and recreate what they had done previously, of course it would be.

"But I don't know what's going on behind the scenes, if they have spoken to them, if they have offered them various things. I don't entirely know.

"But Michael and Jules did an incredible job when they were at Liverpool. They're friends of mine so I wouldn't say anything bad about them!"
