Dalglish places Comolli in charge of recruitment

Liverpool’s new manager Kenny Dalglish has revealed he is happy to let director of football strategy Damian Comolli take charge of the club’s January transfer dealings.

Dalglish is set to meet the club’s owner John W Henry for the first time as manager this weekend to address some of the issues hanging over the club.

One of those issues will be Liverpool’s transfer targets for the current month – the players the club will be hoping can improve their on-field problems.

Comolli was hired by Liverpool to help former boss Roy Hodgson in the transfer market but the pair were to work in tandem.

It was Comolli that identified the likes of Eden Hazard, Sylvain Marveaux and Yann M’Vila as prospective targets and, with Dalglish’s admission, it looks more than likely Liverpool will raid France’s Ligue 1 this month.

Dalglish said: “There is so much demand on a manager's time that it is important to have someone actively organising people, going to see either teams for reports on matches or individual players.

"Having conversations daily with people in the game and seeing what the movement of players are and then reporting back to the manager so the two of them can make a decision.

"I think it is a fantastic help and I don't have a problem with Damien.”

With Dalglish being considered for the manager’s job on a permanent basis, Comolli could continue to be the main man in shaping Liverpool’s future transfer dealings.

Having brought Gareth Bale to Tottenham, Liverpool will be hoping he can unearth another gem to bring to Anfield.
