The Everton supporter questioned whether the Reds had been as financially smart as the former Crystal Palace owner had made Jurgen Klopp’s men out to be in a tweet online.

Under FSG’s sustainable model, we’ve managed to build a team largely off the back of player sales, with Michael Edwards performing miracles as sporting director.

Having studied under the Englishman, we can only hope that Julian Ward continues to live up to his early promise and helps keep the good times rolling during Klopp’s Anfield reign.
