Ward, 41, only took on the role in the summer after taking over from Michael Edwards.

The transfer chief was in charge of Liverpool signing both Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez, plus youngsters Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay.

The Anfield outfit have been left surprised by his decision to quit after just a season in the position, according to Sky Sports.

It comes after owners FSG announced they were exploring new investment opportunities - including the possibility of selling the club.

And Carragher, 44, has shed light on the situation, expressing his concern at the "upheaval" going on behind the scenes.

The ex-defender told Sky: "It's not ideal because I think when you're talking about recruiting players, a person in that role is heavily involved.

"Not just for right now, maybe [in] the January transfer window, you're talking about the summer as well.

"So it does feel like a little bit of a shock and I think it is a little bit of a worry for Liverpool right now.

"There seems to be a lot of upheaval behind the scenes in terms of obviously the ownership, Michael Edwards has moved on, Julian Ward came in to replace him and now he's gone as well.

"So I don't think it will be easy to get someone straight away and if it is unexpected for Liverpool and it's come as a shock [then] I'm sure they're not prepared for something like that right now."

Liverpool are now expected to choose whether to appoint a new sporting director or change the model in which the club is run.

Boss Jurgen Klopp will reportedly have a major say in the decision alongside chief executive Billy Hogan.

Van Dijk takes sly dig at Man Utd when asked about Cody Gakpo making transfer to Liverpool’s rivals

VIRGIL VAN DIJK took a sly dig at Manchester United when discussing Cody Gakpo’s future.

The Liverpool defender and Holland skipper has led his country to the World Cup quarter finals after a 3-1 Last 16 win over USA.

Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries all found the net to see off the Americans at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Dutch starlet Gakpo – who already has a trio of goals in Qatar after scoring in all three group games – impressed once more despite not adding a fourth.

The 23-year-old PSV striker has been linked with a move away after also having a stunning start to the Eredivisie this season with nine goals and 12 assists in 14 appearances.

Man United and Real Madrid have both been heavily linked with Gakpo, whose contract runs out in June 2026.

And when asked whether Gakpo is ready to play at the level of either of those giant clubs, either in January or next summer, Van Dijk replied: “Is Manchester United and Real Madrid the same level at the moment?

"No disrespect, not at all. I definitely think he has that next step in him. I definitely feel like it could happen, whether that is in the winter or the summer or next year, time will tell.

“He is a great boy who works hard, very talented and definitely there is more in him. we are so pleased he is doing so well for us. Long may it continue.”

Holland will play either Argentina or Australia in the last eight before a potential semi-final clash with favourites Brazil.

But Van Dijk added: “I don’t think we will think about success at this point. We will think about game by game. We know we can be knocked out or sent home every game now.

“The focus will be on recovery and making sure we are ready for either Argentina or Australia. We will see.

“We play so many games so there is no point to look too far ahead.”

Van Dijk has also revealed he has full trust in Liverpool to find the right new owners with FSG open to selling in the near future.

Asked if it is on his mind during the World Cup, he explained: “Definitely I am aware of everything that is happening.

“Whether I am taking it in and doing something with it right now, I don’t think so because the full focus is on the World Cup.

“But hopefully everything will be sorted and clarified when I am back. At this point, I am definitely not thinking about it.

“I have full trust in Liverpool that they will be fine. We are a very established club, one of the biggest in the world and that will stay that way.

“Whoever comes in to fill in those roles, they will do very well.”
