Liverpool parts company with assistant manager
Liverpool assistant manager Sammy Lee has left the English
Premier League club by mutual consent.
Lee, who made nearly 300 appearances for Liverpool as a
midfielder, returned to the northwest team in 2008 to become the
No. 2 to Spanish coach Rafael Benitez.
He retained his position in January, despite the arrival of
former Chelsea assistant coach Steve Clarke following the
appointment of Kenny Dalglish as manager.
Lee says ”I’m proud of the contribution I’ve been able to make
since (2008). I want to wish Kenny, the players and the supporters
all the best going forward.”
Lee, who also played for England, won three league titles and
two European Cups in his time as a Liverpool player.
