Comolli will be looking to bring in British youngsters as he is working with the development of the club’s youth programmes.
“We really want to concentrate on getting young English or British kids. I think that’s very important if we want to keep an identity to get those kids into the football club,” Comolli told the Reds’ official website.
“Usually the big European clubs don’t come into England to get players so there will be massive competition in England with all the other big clubs, and then if we need to go abroad or decide to bring in a young kid from a foreign country because we think he’s a top talent then there will be competition with other clubs.
“There are two things. You need to spot them, identify them, make sure they’ve got the right attitude, the right mentality, the right spirit that you want them around on a day-to-day basis.
“The second thing is convincing them to come. That requires a lot of time, it requires a skill set from the scouts, or from myself.”
