Report: First-Team Coach Steve Clarke Hoping to Extend Stay At Anfield


Following Kenny Dalglish's takeover as Liverpool manager in January, former Chelsea first-team coach Steve Clarke was brought in to fill the same position at Anfield, and the result has been the club collecting the second most points in the league since.

Clarke, who was hired only on a short-term contract, has revealed that he is hoping to extend his time with the club, according to Fox Sports.

 "Every manager I've worked with — you pick up good qualities from all of them and so far, in a short space of time, I've seen a lot of great qualities from Kenny," he said.

"I hope to continue the work into the future. Anyone watching us play right now can see the spirit is high, the confidence is good and the performances have been decent. Now we need to continue it.

"If you are working well as a group and working well day in, day out in training — you can see they're taking that onto the pitch right now. If you've got that togetherness it goes a long way in any team sport — especially football."

Dalglish himself has yet to be offered a long-term contract, though it is widely believed that he will continue as manager after this season.
