Football News

Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee is reported to have parted company with the club after three years in the role.

The 52-year-old, a former player alongside current boss Kenny Dalglish, returned to Anfield in 2008 at the invitation of Rafael Benitez. He retained his position as assistant manager in January when highly-respected coach Steve Clarke arrived to coincide with Dalglish's replacement of Roy Hodgson.

A report in the Liverpool Echo claimed he no longer occupied that role, although the club have refused to comment.


Lee has already been linked to a reunion with Sam Allardyce at West Ham, with the pair having successfully worked together at Bolton.

The former midfielder played 294 times for the Reds, winning three league titles and two European Cups, before returning to take charge of the reserves during Graeme Souness' reign as manager.

He was quickly promoted to first-team coach under Gerard Houllier but left the club in 2004 to join England's backroom team, before linking up with Allardyce at Bolton two years later where he had a brief spell as manager before returning to Anfield.
