King Kenny for Permanent Boss
Since the Return of the King(Kenny Dalglish) Liverpool have been on a role. It took a loss and a draw for the Scottish leader to get his side figured out and has now lead them to four straight victories and 13 points out of a possible 15 in the league. This boost of performance has seen the Reds to sixth place in the table only six points down to Tottenham and Chelsea, whom the Reds defeated in a tactical masterpiece on Sunday afternoon.
Jamie Carragher has been Dalglish's prime supporter as the Reds vice-captain helps lead a surge of support to get the former Liverpool legend re-installed as the permanent Gaffer at the club. Carragher has made multiple comments regarding his icon, stating, “He’s brought the club together as one. The supporters are now behind everything, and I think that helped, the players and the supporters are all together."
“...I think Kenny coming in has galvanized the support behind the team again, and obviously his record as a manager in the past is fantastic. He’s one of the top managers around, he’s won four championships."
“It’s hard to put your finger on what he’s done. I would never criticize Roy Hodgson or say this manager is doing something different or is better, that is disrespectful. But it’s going well at the moment and we will certainly enjoy it.”
Steven Gerrard has also been a key supporter of the move for Dalglish to stay, and other players like Daniel Agger seem to finally have decided that Anfield is the place for them after reports a week ago that Agger was delighted to play for Kenny and that he desired to stay on Merseyside under the new skipper.
Dirk Kuyt is the latest first team star to come out and publicly back his manager in the press with his statements. The dutch striker spoke out saying, "He(Dalglish) is a legend, not only for the supporters, but also for the players. He has helped me a lot."
"We are really happy with Kenny so far. It has been really positive for us from the first day he came and he gave us a lot of belief."Continued on the next page
