Former Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli sat down with Football Whispers to discuss what is involved in this often misunderstood role. Comolli also reflects on some of the biggest transfer deals he’s been involved with and which young striker the Frenchman considers to be “one of the biggest talents” he has ever seen.

The one-time football coach — responsible for the signings of Gareth Bale at Spurs and Jordan Henderson at Liverpool — also explains how there can be a disconnect between what owners want and what they expect, for example when they request the transfers of young players who are ready for top level football.

Comolli also talks about how he combines of his years of experience in the game alongside cold hard data to identify new players.
