And after appointing Richard Hughes as the Reds' new sporting director, Marques will now join the Boston-based group. The 41-year-old previously served as an analyst for Manchester City and the City Football Group before joining Benfica.

In 2022, he was part of negotiations when the Eagles sold Darwin Nunes to Liverpool in 2022 for a fee of up to £85 million. It is reported that FSG and Liverpool ' seek to utilise his expertise to attract global talent' and has ties to ex-Reds sporting director Julian Ward.
