Liverpool boss Dalglish would welcome new football director

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish would welcome the appointment of a new football director.

Dalglish, who has always had the final say on signings, has dismissed the suggestion that not having a Director of Football will impinge on Liverpool's transfer policy.

"We are not idle," said Dalglish, discussing Damien Comolli's axing. "The owners haven't decided how they are going to replace Damien but that doesn't mean the work has stopped.

"Anything we have got to do, we will continue to do the best we can until the owners make the decision on how they want Damien's role replaced. There is no guarantee that they will replace Damien like for like.

"The people (who come in) will just take up the conversations we have had. We know where we are going. The Director of Football role in this country is much maligned.

"I think people just have something against the job title or the principles. For me, the role Damien played was a fantastic help. I think it would be for any manager, as long as everyone knows the lines that they cannot cross, that's fine."
