Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish blasts rumors about his exit
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has rubbished rumors about his exit from the club. In a recent interview to the BBC, manager Kenny Dalglish defiantly stated that he was not going to leave the club in spite of all the biased criticism.
Liverpool has recorded a miserable season in the English Premier League, which has seen them finish eight on the table. Although, Liverpool’s performance has been utterly woeful in the English Premier League they have recorded a lot of success in the domestic leagues.
The Merseyside Reds, Liverpool managed to end their 16-year long drought for action in Wembley when they won the Carling Cup final. In the process Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish also helped the club bring their first trophy in six years.
Liverpool also entered the final for FA Cup which was at Wembley again. Liverpool was defeated 2-1 by Chelsea in the final, their performance in the tournament showed that the Reds were still able to defeat top notch teams in England.
After a miserable end to the English Premier League, which saw a 1-0 defeat to Swansea City, rumors about manager Kenny Dalglish’s exit started to stir around the Merseyside. The defeat was Liverpool 14th defeat this season, which is something quite depressing considering the fact that manager Kenny Dalglish has spent over £120 million on players since he has arrived at Liverpool.
Liverpool owners, John W. Henry and Tom Werner are presently visiting Anfield in order to review the progress of the club. Many critics believe the time has arrived for manager Kenny Dalglish to step down from his Liverpool throne.
Rumors suggest Wigan Athletic manager, Roberto Martinez could be the new manager of Liverpool in case Kenny Dalglish is sacked. The Spaniard, Roberto Martinez has managed to avoid the relegation of Wigan Athletic in spite of a poor start to the season. Roberto Martinez, who is an expert at managing clubs with low budgets, has helped Wigan Athletic to 15th spot on the English Premier League table.
Last season was Liverpool’s worst form in the league since the 1993-94 season. Nonetheless, it was manager Kenny Dalglish who helped Liverpool to their last league title. The celebrated Liverpool player, who later on became a manager at his beloved club, is hailed as the King of Kop for his heroics at the club, hence sacking the Liverpool legend won’t go unnoticed.
“I expect the owners to have more dignity and integrity than to believe a story in a newspaper,” manager Kenny Dalglish said in an interview to the BBC.
Kenny Dalglish has led Liverpool to only six league victories at Anfield this season. If Liverpool’s continues to post lack lustrous form next season, Liverpool owners will surely end manager Kenny Dalglish’s second spell with the club.
