Lee poised for Liverpool return

Sammy Lee
Lee was sacked as Bolton manager after just six months in charge

Former Liverpool midfielder Sammy Lee is in talks to become Rafael Benitez's assistant manager.

Lee has held discussions with chief executive Rick Parry after first team coach Alex Miller left to manage Japanese side JEF United Chiba.

The 49-year-old was sacked as manager of Bolton in October after taking over from Sam Allardyce.

He now looks set to return to the club where he has previously been reserve team manager and first team coach.

Benitez has been without an assistant since the departure of Pako Ayesteran last August.

Lee had an illustrious playing career at Liverpool, making nearly 200 appearances, before moving into coaching.

He formed part of the coaching set-up at Anfield under previous managers Graeme Souness and Gerard Houllier and has also been part of the England coaching team.

He was assistant manager at Bolton and was promoted when Allardyce left the club at the end of last season.
