Steve Clarke, the former Chelsea assistant manager, has been confirmed as Kenny Dalglish’s first appointment at Liverpool.

Clarke, number two to Jose Mourinho, Avram Grant and Luiz Felipe Scolari before a brief stint at West Ham, arrived at Liverpool’s Melwood training complex this morning as Dalglish continues to reshape the club following the departure of Roy Hodgson on Saturday.

A statement on the club’s website read: “Liverpool FC announced today that Steve Clarke has joined the Club as First Team Coach. Clarke, who played over 500 senior games for St Mirren and Chelsea, also brings with him considerable experience as Assistant Manager at Newcastle United, Chelsea and West Ham United.”

Dalglish added: “Steve is a great addition to our backroom team and I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring him into the Club. I am looking forward to working with Steve alongside Sammy and our other technical staff.”

Clarke effectively replaces, Mike Kelly, Hodgson’s assistant at Fulham, who also left the club over the weekend.
