Liverpool FC have now officially confirmed the departure of Sammy Lee. The news of Lee's departure broke a few days ago but it was only yesterday that the club confirmed the story. The former assistant manager has left by mutual consent. "We'd like to place on record our thanks for all of Sammy's hard work over the years and the contribution he has made to Liverpool. He has always been a credit to the Football Club and a credit to himself. Everyone at Liverpool FC wishes him all the best in his future career," said Kenny Dalglish. "I returned to the Club in 2008 and I'm proud of the contribution I've been able to make since then. I want to wish Kenny, the players and the supporters all the best going forward," said Lee.
