Been There, Done It:
- Pako Ayesteran – The Spaniard spent three years with the Reds working alongside Rafael Benitez, where he helped mastermind our Champions League triumph in 2005 and our FA Cup victory twelve months later. He’s since worked with Benfica, Valencia and become a manager – taking charge of Mexican minnows Tecos and Israeli giants Maccabi Tel Aviv – who he left earlier this year after winning the treble.
- Steve Clarke – Was Kenny Dalglish’s assistant manager during his second spell as Liverpool manager and helped us win the League Cup. He departed following the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, supposedly after being sacked by the Reds. Has since gone into management with West Bromwich Albion – enjoying a couple of good years with them in the top flight – before ending up at Reading, who he took to an FA Cup semi-final.
