Staunton's appointment confirmed

Steve Staunton's appointment as Gary McAllister's assistant has been confirmed.

The former Liverpool team-mates have linked up again this time as a double act at Leeds, and the former Irish player and boss, who also played under McAllister at Coventry is relishing the job ahead of him, Staunton told leedsunited.com: "I'm delighted to be here. Gary brought me to Coventry as a player, I played with him at Liverpool, and it's nice to team up again.

"I hope I can be of assistance and help this great club get back to where it belongs.

"It's a great opportunity to work at a big club with a good manager, and learn the ropes from someone else on the inside and see how a club runs.

"Your next progression after playing is coaching and managing and this is a great opportunity for ourselves to be part of something that will be big in a few years."

Like McAllister, Staunton is initially contracted to Leeds until the end of the current season.

They'll turn things around, both good pro's but it does take time for new management & changes to the playing staff to take effect!
