Liverpool fans were finally treated to the news they have been waiting for months on Thursday afternoon, as Kenny Dalglish was finally given a permanent contract at Anfield.
Dalglish signed a 3 year deal with the reds and his assistant Steve Clarke was also given a 3 year contract. Dalglish has transformed Liverpool since he took over from Roy Hodgson in January with 10 wins from his 16 matches in charge, including a 3-1 win over Manchester United at Anfield.
It seemed inevitable that the 60 year old Scot would be given the job on a permanent basis but it took some time for the announcement to be made, but now finally every Liverpool fan can look forward to what promises to be a bright future for the club under the tenure of ‘King’ Kenny, if the end of this season is anything to go by.
Dalglish has guided Liverpool to fifth in the Premier League and on the verge of a place in Europe next season, something that seemed impossible early on in the campaign. The Scot has also been integral in bringing through some young players who have really impressed for the reds. Players such as Jay Spearing, Martin Kelly, John Flanagan and Jack Robinson have come into the team and not looked out of place as Dalglish has given his trust to them, which bodes well for the future of Liverpool football club.
Liverpool’s record under Kenny Dalglish:
34 Goals Scored
14 Goals Conceded
