Director of football, manager and incoming boss can each veto a move
Liverpool director of football strategy Damien Comolli is to set up a three-man transfer panel to ensure consensus when the club decides on its targets, Goal.com UK has learned.
The Frenchman wants himself, manager Roy Hodgson and the incoming chief executive to all have equal power when it comes to determining and chasing potential signings.
All three will discuss possible targets and their viability and will each have the right to veto moves so that no deal is done without 100 per cent backing of the main decision-makers at the club.
Comolli’s idea is to ensure the key figures at Anfield take collective responsibility and avoid the internal conflicts that marred his time as sporting director at Tottenham and have led to scepticism over whether the two-tier European model can work in English football.
