Damien Comolli, Liverpool’s director of football, has praised the long-term improvement of Kenny Dalglish and his squad, according to the North
Comolli said: “What you want is a progression and I think for the last 12-14 months we are showing progression everywhere on and off the pitch in terms of squad structure, the players Kenny has to choose from, the young players the academy is producing and who are coming through.”
The former Tottenham Hotspur director of football joined Liverpool in December 2010 while Roy Hodgson was in the manager’s chair, having worked at White Hart Lane between 2005 and 2008. Comolli was dismissed by Spurs at the same time manager Juande Ramos was sacked. Prior to his role with Tottenham Comolli worked as a youth coach for Monaco as well as a scout under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal and as technical director for Saint-Etienne. After leaving Tottenham, returned to Saint-Etienne for a further two years.
Liverpool won the League Cup on Sunday, defeating Championship side Cardiff City on penalties, to pick up their first piece of silverware since the FA Cup in 2006. Comolli was also present as Tottenham won the same competition in 2008, with a 2-1 victory over Chelsea.
