Scouting director of the Boston Red Sox (a baseball team owned by the same owner as Liverpool Football Club).
The two men, who visited the Lige facilities a few weeks ago and attended Standard – Club Brugge on 23 January, want to take over the day-to-day management of the club. He visited several Western European clubs, but became fascinated by the passion surrounding Standard and the club’s history.
