7 years ago

Liverpool have added two former Newcastle stars to their worldwide scouting network,

August saw one-time Newcastle and Real Madrid central defender Jonathan Woodgate agree to work for the scousers.

The now retired majestic defender covering Portugal and Spain for potential transfer targets.

October has seen another former Newcastle favourite join Woodgate on the scouting team, with Andy ‘any any’ O’Brien also signing up for Liverpool.

Also formerly a centre-back, O’Brien will be based in Canada and monitor the MLS for future talent.

Immortalised in song after scoring against the mackems, Andy O’Brien later played for Vancouver Whitecaps, so already has knowledge of the market over there.
