A return to Merseyside could be on the cards for Michael Beale just seven months after he left his position as Liverpool’s U23s manager.
Beale stepped down from his role at the club in December and moved to Brazil to become the assistant manager of Brasileiro Serie A side Sao Paulo.
The Englishman has now resigned from the job according to Globo Esporte, who have described Beale’s family struggling to adapt to the move and a frustration towards issues behind the scenes at the club as main reasons for his exit.
It has also been reported that he stopped learning Portuguese, making for poor communication between himself and the players.
Bringing Beale back to Liverpool could be a wise move given just how key he was in overseeing the development of youth starlets who have since broken into the first team and made a number of appearances under Jurgen Klopp.
This included helping the likes of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold make the smooth transition to the senior side, in which both have made good impressions.
An undoubtedly valuable experience in Brazil is sure to have put him in a strong position to receive a number of job offers, which may well include an opportunity to return to the Liverpool setup.
The Reds’ youth system is in a great place at the moment with Neil Critchley having taken over the U23s and club legend Steven Gerrard set to start his first season as the U18s manager.
Reintroducing Beale would make perfect sense given his knowledge of the youngsters and his success during his time at the club.
