Former Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein has been advising Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group in recent months and is set to be appointed at Anfield, according to reports.
It is understood that Dein played a part in the decision to remove both Damien Comolli and Kenny Dalglish from the club in recent weeks and is playing a major part in the interview process for a new Reds manager.
Dein was spotted with former Liverpool Director of Football Comolli shortly before the Frenchman’s departure, sparking speculation that he was set for a role at Anfield.
Reds managing director Ian Ayre has hinted this week that the recent departures at the club will force a shake-up of roles with many predicting Ayre’s role will be restricted to commercial revenues, allowing a new director of football to take over all sporting decisions.
