LONDON - Liverpool chairman Tom Werner is backing coach Kenny Dalglish to become Liverpool’s permanent boss.
Werner said Dalglish was staking a strong claim to get the job full-time, even though his record after three games in charge is two defeats and a draw.
The Sun quoted Werner, as saying: “I think he’s the right man for the job. Is there a scenario where he could get the job full time? Sure.
“Kenny is a terrific stabiliser of the situation. He’s been a great manager as well as an iconic figure beloved by all the supporters. He’s done everything that we could have hoped for and more to raise the spirits of the fans and I’m looking forward to many victories in the future. He fits the criteria that we’re looking for in a manager,” he added.
“He’s only been on the job for a short term, but he’s quite aware of the challenge. The players are quite supportive of Kenny and I’ve been very impressed with him. And, we’ve been very pleased with the progress,” Werner said. (ANI)
