Dalglish: Important to settle down Liverpool coaching team

New Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says it's been important to settle down his backroom team this week.

Dalglish wants to create a sense of belonging, a unified front and club-wide commitment to the cause.

"We have to get our own house in order," said Dalglish, who takes his side to Blackpool tomorrow without suspended captain Steven Gerrard.

"We brought in Steve Clarke (as first-team coach) and settled the place down, making sure Sammy Lee (assistant manager) knew he was staying.

"The other people that are important to us are the people who are here and we look after them.

"That is more important than worrying about what might happen or who might come in.

"What is immediate for us is the staff and players we have working together and the people know who they are there will do their very best to do that.

"If someone comes up who is attractive to the club then fine but at this moment there have not been any conversations about that.

"I couldn't tell you definitively whether there will be people coming in."
