Newly re-titled as Director of Football at Anfield, Damien Comolli, has spoken to the official club magazine LFC Weekly to insist he is pleased with the progress the reds are making following the takeover in the Autumn.
“I share the fans’ optimism because the owners said things when they arrived and stuck to their words in January.
“They have shown their commitment and their backing and everything they have said they will do, they have done.
Liverpool fans have watched many disappointing transfer windows over the last 3 years in particular as the heavy debt placed on the club began to affect on the field ambitions. Comolli in particular worked hard to secure the deal for Luis Suarez, after a particularly hard-ball negotiation from Ajax at the end of January.
“I never had any doubts about that but I think for the fans it has given them reassurance that the owners will stick to their words and that they are ambitious.
“When you talk to John Henry and ask him what his plans are for the club, the only thing he says is: ‘I want to win’.
“When that’s the starting point, everybody has to make sure that everything we do is geared in that direction. That’s the bottom line.”
