Lee takes up Reds role

Sammy Lee today took up his appointment as Liverpool’s new assistant manager.

The Anfield playing legend was at the club’s Melwood training complex this morning to start his new job.

Lee, 49, returns to the Reds after being sacked as Bolton manager earlier in the season.

He has been appointed by boss Rafael Benitez following the departure earlier this month of first-team coach Alex Miller to take up a management job in Japan.

As a player Lee won the title, the League Cup and European Cup during the 1980s before taking on a role as reserve coach and then first-team coach at the club under Graeme Souness and Gerard Houllier, respectively.

He effectively replaces Pako Ayesteran, who left the club at the beginning of the 2007/08 season.
