Before this season started, I said that our best signing in the summer was getting Sam Lee to return to Anfield and become Rafa’s assistant. As the season is getting to a close, we have clearly progressed in the league and we may just be a bit short of getting the title this season but we are already making plans for making sure we win the Premiership next season and it all starts with the possible return of Kenny Dalglish. For me King Kenny is my all time favourite Liverpool player. I loved him as a player and then as a manager. I was gutted when he left his role as manager after the Hillsborough disaster. It is interesting to hear him now say that if Liverpool asked him to be manager again after Hillsborough, he would have said yes.
I would have loved to see Dalglish back in the dugout but I guess all good things come to those that wait and Dalglish may yet be back at Anfield. He may not be back in the dugout as I would have loved but whatever role he takes up, be it in the youth academy, a consultant or director of football, just having the King back in the running of the club will be a huge bonus.
If my understanding is correct, Kenny would become an advisor to Rafa and I think Rafa would benefit a great deal from Kenny’s experience especially when it comes to the league. Dalglish may spend more time working with the academy so he can develop the young talent on Merseyside and make sure they come to Liverpool and not Everton. What is encouraging to hear is that Kenny is more than ready to come back and help the club in anyway he can.
Please come back Kenny!!
