Liverpool is set to be handed greater scope to implement FSG’s famous ‘Moneyball’ style in the transfer market, with the latest development a major boost.
Since Brexit and the associated fallout, Liverpool’s transfer plans and strategy have had to pivot. With the new point-based system to determine who qualifies for a work permit, a lot of players fell out of the club’s reach.
For example, under the new rules, Liverpool would never have been able to sign Stefan Bajčetić, who was brought in just before Brexit regulations came into effect, and has since flourished at Anfield.
But while making things a little bit more difficult for Liverpool, the changes haven’t necessarily impacted them as much as other clubs, especially ones lower down in the Premier League table or in the Championship.
