Kevin Keen becomes Liverpool's first team coach

4th July 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Liverpool FC have confirmed that Kevin Keen is the club's new first team coach after the departure of Sammy Lee last week.

During spells at West Ham, Wolves, Stoke City and Wycombe, Keen clocked up more than 600 career appearances. Also, he was previously the first team coach at West Ham, where he was caretaker manager three times.

Liverpool football manager Kenny Dalglish told the club's official website: "I'm delighted that Kevin is joining us to work alongside Steve Clarke coaching the first team squad.

"He is highly respected in the game and will be a great addition to our technical staff."

Kevin Keen has also previously worked alongside Steve Clarke, who is another member of the club's coaching staff.

Liverpool could be able to call on Steven Gerrard when the season starts next month, as Dalglish has admitted that the club captain's recovery from injury has been positive.
