The decision also means less uncertainty for players. Every Reds player will now know that Kenny Dalglish will be the manager next season, and with his outstanding record in charge for the last 4 months, many will be convinced to stay just because of the calibre of the person in charge. It will also influence top players to come and play for the Reds who were uncertain about moving to Merseyside with the future of the manager still uncertain. The style of play that Kenny encourages will also influence players, according to Comolli:
“The more quality football we play and the more feedback we get from people in football, I sense we are very attractive to top players, whether it’s at Academy level where a lot of talented young boys want to join us or at first team level where a lot of senior players want to join us. It shows the excitement is not just within the club and that it is spread around. We are attractive as a club and that’s very positive for the future.”
With the highly influential Steve Clarke also signing a new three year deal, a man crucial to Liverpool’s recent run of form, all thoughts seem to be incredibly positive for next season.

It is hard not to be optimistic about Liverpool for next season. Having Kenny back just brings a feelgood factor that is hard to measure the importance of. Add to that some youngsters playing out of their skin with consistency and I am a happy chappie!
