Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli leaves club
Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has left the club by mutual consent.

Damien Comolli joined Liverpool as Director of Football in November 2010, having previously been employed in similar roles at Saint-Etienne and Tottenham and during his tenure at the club, at which time one of his main responsibilities related to the scouting and procuring of new signings, the Merseyside club spent a large sum on a number of new additions that haven’t really come off.
The likes of Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Andy Carroll joined the club in deals totalling over £60m and have not justified the cost spent to bring them to the club and one wonders if this could have led to his leaving the club.
Kenny Dalglish doesn’t strike me as the type of manager who has a lot of time for ‘Director of Football’ roles and is clearly a very hands on type of manager and may well have pushed to be more in control of the areas that Comolli was employed to fill.
