Former Premier League Star Says Other Clubs Could Learn From Liverpool's Transfer Tactics

Former Premier League midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker has urged other clubs to learn from Liverpool’s knack of selling players at the right time.

Speaking about Sadio Mane’s move to Bayern Munich, he praised the Merseyside club for coping with the loss of such an integral part of the team.

On the BBC’s Football Daily podcast he said, ‘He took Liverpool to another level and clearly it is a big loss. But they are always planning ahead and have got the structure and pieces in place to deal with departures.’

‘From a business perspective, it’s the right time to sell Mane.'

'Other clubs play hardball over players and then lose them on a free transfer a year later.'

'I think they could learn from how Liverpool know when to let go of their players.’

Liverpool’s transfer business under the leadership of Michael Edwards and now Julian Ward has been the envy of Europe in recent years and they appear to have pulled off another spectacular summer.

An already brimming attacking roster has been supplemented by Uruguayan Darwin Nunez, who signed recently from Benfica.

European giants such as Real Madrid, Chelsea and PSG have all tried to lure Liverpool’s backroom transfer Tsars away from the Reds, but none have yet been successful.

Liverpool have not only managed astonishing success over the past few years, but have done it on a relatively modest budget

However, they may now have become victims of their own success, as several of their star players have started demanding higher wages as compensation for their efforts these last couple of years.

With this partially fuelling Mane’s exit and possibly leading to Mo Salah’s, Liverpool might have to pull off their best trick yet to replace these two superstars.
