Liverpool Manager Kenny Dalglish Fired
Kenny Dalglish Fired As FC Liverpool Manager
Kenny Dalglish was dramatically sacked after Liverpool’s owners held him responsible for the club’s dismal Barclays Premier League campaign.
‘Kenny came into the club as manager at our request at a time when Liverpool really needed him. He didn’t ask to be manager; he was asked to assume the role. He did so because he knew the club needed him,” said Liverpool chairman Tom Werner.
‘He did more than anyone else to stabilise Liverpool over the past year-and-a-half. We owe him a great debt of gratitude. However, results in the Premier League have been disappointing and we believe to build on the progress that has already been made, we need to make a change.
‘We are committed to delivering success for our supporters and our ambition remains resolute to return this great club to the elite of England and Europe, where it belongs.’
‘Kenny will always be more than a championship-winning manager, more than a championship-winning star player.
‘He is in many ways the heart and soul of the club.
‘He personifies everything that is good about Liverpool Football Club.
‘He has always put the club and its supporters first. Kenny will always be a part of the family at Anfield.
‘Our job now is to identify and recruit the right person to take this club forward and build on the strong foundations put in place during the last 18 months.’
