Following Sammy Lee’s departure from Liverpool by mutual consent last week, Liverpoolfc.tv reports that Kevin Keen has joined the Liverpool coaching staff.

Keen had been widely tipped to join the Liverpool coaching staff as soon as it was known that Lee was leaving. Keen worked with current Liverpool coach, Steve Clarke at West Ham and he acted as Caretaker Manager for West Ham on three separate occasions.

Kenny Dalglish spoke about his delight in having Keen join the team. “I’m delighted that Kevin is joining us to work alongside Steve Clarke coaching the First Team squad. He has previously worked with Steve at West Ham and has a good reputation and a good manner about him.

“He is highly respected in the game and will be a great addition to our technical staff.”

I guess now we just have to wait for the announcement that Steve Clarke is the new assistant manager.

Welcome to Liverpool Kevin Keen!
