Disgraced former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys has admitted he was wrong to question Liverpool appointing a specialist throw-in coach.

Liverpool first began to utilise the services of Thomas Gronnemark on a freelance basis at the start of the 2018/19 season.

The appointment by Jurgen Klopp was mocked by Keys and fellow former Sky Sports employee Andy Gray during a subsequent show on beIN SPORTS.

However, Gronnemark's contribution has been regarded so beneficial that the Dane has spent the last three years working with the club, with his latest agreement due for renewal this summer.

And having read West Ham United boss David Moyes discuss the important of restarts from dead-ball situations, Keys has now changed his mind over the need for a specialist role.

"I smiled when I read Moyes on throw-ins!" he said. "I was never convinced by Liverpool’s use of a ‘specialist’ throw-in coach - but maybe I was wrong.

"The stand-out argument appears to be that teams have to be careful when taking a throw because they’re down a man at that moment.

"Maybe - but it’s only for a millisecond if they are. Change is coming, mind you. I know that because I’ve had the conversation with Arsene Wenger. It won’t be long before we’re kicking the ball in from the defensive half. Trust me. It’s coming."

Keys added on Moyes's comments : "His analysis of set-pieces was excellent - but I think we’ve always known how important they are.

"Sadly England’s specialist set-piece coach, Gary Neville, got them all wrong in 2016 - do you remember Harry Kane taking corners? My goodness. And it was no better at the other end where Iceland capitalised on some equally baffling marking decisions."

Only four teams scored more goals from set-pieces than Liverpool last season in the Premier League.
