Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish is delighted with the addition of Kevin Keen to his back-room staff for the new season.
The former West Ham United coach replaces the outgoing Sammy Lee at Anfield on a three-year contract.
Keen's appointment comes just in time for the beginning of the new season, and Dalglish says he's delighted to get him on board.
“I'm delighted that Kevin is joining us to work alongside Steve Clarke coaching the first team squad,” Dalglish said.
“He has previously worked with Steve at West Ham and has a good reputation and a good manner about him.
“He is highly respected in the game and will be a great addition to our technical staff.”
Following the signing of Jordan Henderson from Sunderland, Liverpool have been linked with a host of players to help bolster their squad, but as yet, the Anfield club have yet to make a second move in the window.
However, Dalglish is refusing to be drawn on potential targets.
“We are obviously trying to bring people in and people are trying to take players from us,” Dalglish said.
“I wouldn't mention anyone as a target for us. We are not going to speculate and be disrespectful and talk about other people at other clubs.
“Every manager I've seen interviewed on television has said exactly the same thing. That's the way it should be.”
