Liverpool have appointed former Spurs sporting director Damien Comolli as their new director of football strategy.

The Frenchman has been drafted in to oversee the club's recruitment strategy overseas, with manager Roy Hodgson keen to continue to strengthen his Anfield squad.

Hodgson told the club's official website:"I am looking forward to working with Damien, whom I have known for many years.

"We are engaged in an exciting project here and he will bring a lot to the table.

"We all want to see moves to strengthen the squad and support player development over the next few years. John Henry and I are totally united in delivering on that ambition."

Comolli himself added:"I am delighted to be joining Liverpool and look forward to working with John and Roy.

"I think we all realise there is a big job ahead, but we all share the vision that John has for rebuilding the club and bringing back the success that the supporters deserve."
