Steve Clarke leaves Liverpool
Liverpool: Liverpool assistant boss Steve Clarke has left the club with immediate effect, according to the League Managers Association.
The Scot has forged a reputation as one of English football`s top coaches after spells with the likes of West Ham United, Chelsea and Newcastle and joined the Reds in January 2011 as part of Kenny Dalglish`s backroom team.
However, his exit has long been expected after Dalglish was relieved of his duties in May on the back of a disappointing league campaign. The Reds lifted the League Cup and reach the final of the FA Cup, but their lowly eighth-placed finish was deemed unacceptable by Boston-based owners Fenway Sports Group.
Clarke`s departure clears the way for new Reds boss Brendan Rodgers to hire his own backroom staff following his appointment one week ago.
Rodgers - who guided Premier League new boys Swansea to an impressive 11th-placed finish in 2012 - has yet to bring in a number two of his own but the two clubs have agreed compensation packages for three of the Swans` coaching group including Liberty Stadium assistant Colin Pascoe.
Performance analyst Chris Davies and Head of Sports Science Glen Driscoll have also left south Wales to join the Anfield outfit.
