Liverpool are ready to turn to Kenny Dalglish as their emergency managerial appointment.
Yesterday’s 2-1 victory over Bolton will help beleaguered boss Roy Hodgson hang onto his job in the short term. But Hodgson still appears to be doomed.
The Anfield hierarchy are searching for a long term successor. At the moment it seems the men they want are not available.
So an SOS to King Kenny, the Liverpool legend, to take over with his old assistant-manager Phil Thompson is seen as the smartest stop-gap move.
Dalglish is currently employed as an adviser to Liverpool, predominantly working in their academy. He enjoyed a glorious 14 years from 1977 as a player and manager with the club before standing down.
He was ready to return as boss last summer before Hodgson’s appointment. And in the current crisis he would respond positively to the SOS.
In recent weeks unhappy Liverpool fans have chanted for Kenny’s return. They may well get their way even though Dalglish is not seen as the best long term appointment to succeed Hodgson.
Rafa Benitez, who quit Liverpool last summer and was sacked by Inter Milan last week, is being mentioned in some quarters as a potential appointment. But the likelihood is that Damien Comolli, the club’s influential director of football, will present a new name and direction to the Anfield board. (Daily Mirror)
Speculation is rife tonight that Roy Hodgson is set to be axed despite seeing his Liverpool side battle to a last gasp victory over Bolton today. Kenny Dalglish is reportedly set to take over from the 63 year old who has suffered irreparable damage following a horrid start to the season but it appears his attack on the Anfield faithful may have been the final straw and now the club’s owners are set to act.
If these rumours are indeed accurate how do Liverpool fans feel about such an appointment?
