Kevin Keegan believes that Kenny Dalglish was the only man the club could have bought in to turn things around for the club after the disaster of Roy Hodgson.

“I think only he could have come in at the time and lifted the club,” Keegan told “They needed someone who the fans believed in. Only Kenny could have come in and made that immediate impact because of his knowledge of the club.

“For example, when I went to Fulham, I had to learn about the club – but you don’t need to learn about anything if you’ve played and managed here before.

“I wasn’t surprised to see him return because it’s in your blood. He was at the club and he was seeing things – things he knew probably weren’t quite right or that if he was making a certain decision, it would be a different one.

“So he had that big advantage of being there and getting an overview of all of the club. When he came in, he hit the ground running.”

There was a time, once upon a time, when I thought that Kevin Keegan himself could have been a good Liverpool manager, do you think Keegan could have or could be a good Liverpool manager?

    Keegan’s is right. Hodgson was a disaster. a mid-table mentality suited for mid-table teams.

    keegan was never a great manager. he is too determined in his own ideas, is by all accounts a mediocre man manager and has always seemed to clash with his board.
    kev was a great player, but not what we need as manager.

    Hey Ashfah
    Did KEEGAN say Hodgson was a disaster, or did the Author?
    You might just want to check the text again and make sure you aren’t misinterpreting the comment, the way the author probably hoped you would.
