DAMIEN COMOLLI says he shares the 'same vision' as Roy Hodgson and insists no players will be signed without the Liverpool manager's agreement.
The recent appointment of the Frenchman as director of football strategy was seen by many as a threat to Hodgson's authority.
However, Comolli says he's enjoying working with Hodgson and believes the club will benefit from their double act.
'We already had a good relationship from my time at Spurs when he was coach at Finland or Fulham,' he said.
'We've been talking at length since I joined, several times a day on different issues and different matters, not only related to the transfer window or to scouting, we talk about everything.
'I think this relationship is going to grow in a positive way. We see things the same way. So far everything we have discussed we totally agree and have the same vision. I expect that's going to go on.
'I have got a lot of respect for him. When you see the clubs he has managed and the national teams he has managed, what he's done at Fulham, what he's done at Blackburn and obviously being in charge here.
'In Switzerland maybe people don't realise how difficult it was when he was there. He changed the mentality of the people, tactically he brought new stuff.
