Liverpool appoint former Tottenham sporting director

November 4, 2010

Liverpool have appointed ex-Tottenham director of football Damien Comolli as their director of football strategy.

The 38-year-old Frenchman was sacked by Spurs in October 2008 after three years at the club and later joined French outfit St Etienne as sporting director.

He will begin work with Reds owner John Henry and boss Roy Hodgson immediately.

“I am delighted to be joining Liverpool and look forward to working with John and Roy, health ” said Comolli, who also spent seven seasons as a scout at Arsenal.

“I think we all realise there is a big job ahead, but we all share the vision that John has for rebuilding the club and bringing back the success that the supporters deserve.”

Liverpool finished seventh in the Premier League last season, missing out on a place in the Champions League for the first time since 2003.
