Ex-Man Utd striker Jordan recalls working with Liverpool chief Edwards

Former Manchester United striker Joe Jordan has spoken of working with Liverpool football chief Michael Edwards.

Jordan, who worked with Edwards at Portsmouth, has given a unique insight into what he is really like.

"We worked on putting presentations together for the upcoming game and Michael also gave in-depth analysis on players that the club may have been interested in," Jordan, Harry Redknapp's former assistant, told The Times.

"He had a playing career himself and I have always thought he is a good judge of a player.

"But it is not simply that. There are thousands of players out there and he does his homework.

"Michael doesn't take any shortcuts. He makes sure when a player has been brought to his attention that he looks into it and gets his facts and figures right.

"He wants to make sure that if he is putting forward that player to the manager, all the information is in place."
