Comolli leaves Liverpool by mutual consent

Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool FC confirmed today that Director of Football Damien Comolli has left the Club by mutual consent.

Principal Owner John Henry said: “We are grateful for all of Damien’s efforts on behalf of Liverpool and wish him all the best for the future.”

Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner added: “The Club needs to move forward and we now have a huge game on Saturday. It is important that everyone joins us in supporting the manager and gets behind Kenny and the team and focuses on a strong finish to the season.”

Damien Comolli commented: “I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to work at Liverpool and am happy to move on from the Club and back to France for family reasons. I wish the Club all the best for the future.”

Comolli had been one of the first recruits made by the Reds owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) when they assumed control, but appears to have ultimately paid the price for a number of questionable player acquisitions.

What does everyone think of the Comolli departure?

    Kenny was apparently never happy with the `structure’ of having Comolli as recruiter (old school??). However it looks as thoughprobably Comolli has at long last paid the price of some very ordinary, atr best, signings. Steve mentions David Dein, yes a good thought, but has he got too much Arsenal baggage?

      Yes true but his talent spotting is mind blowing.

      1)  Ian Wright
      2)Dennis Bergkamp
      3)Patrick Vieira
      4)Cesc Fabregas
      5)Robin Van Persie.
