Liverpool CEO Peter Moore has moved to ease fan fears, and put across a gentle reminder via Twitter, that he is not in charge of the club’s transfer dealings.
Moore has been inundated with calls from fans to sign players such as Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita, amongst others.
Since taking over the role in June, Moore has taken the time to respond to Liverpool fans via his personal Twitter account, but wanted to use his social platform to let many of the 87,000+ followers know that he has no input on the club’s signings.
In a trio of Tweets, Moore said: “Pls (please) allow me to provide a respectful reminder that managing activities such as player transfers is NOT amongst my CEO responsibilities
“Our sporting director and manager and their teams manage that side of the club and I am extremely confident in their abilities to do so.
“I see great value in the interaction here with our superb supporters around the world,and look forward to doing so throughout the season.”

It is Michael Edwards who has the role within the club of securing the signatures of Jurgen Klopp’s targets, and he has already overseen the three signings Liverpool have made thus far in the summer: Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson and club-record purchase Mohamed Salah.
