Leicester City have appointed former Liverpool chief scout Eduardo Macia as their new Head of Senior Recruitment. He replaces Steve Walsh who was poached by Everton in the summer to become their new Director of Football.
During his time with Liverpool (2006 to 2010), Macia helped deliver the likes of Fernando Torres, Javier Mascherano, Raheem Sterling and others.
Commenting on the appointment, Leicester’s director of football Jon Rudkin, said: “Eduardo’s appointment follows an extensive process undertaken by the football club, to identify a candidate of outstanding experience that would contribute significantly to the long-term development our player recruitment strategy.
“His expertise and network of contacts will add considerable strength to our existing team of recruitment staff, whose skill and diligence contributed greatly to a successful summer transfer window.
“To appoint someone of Eduardo’s calibre further highlights the club’s ambition to strengthen its standing in the game and to realise our owners’ vision of success that is both lasting and sustainable.”
