Liverpool manager, Kenny Dalglish sacked!
There were so many speculations regarding Kenny Dalglish’s future as manager at Liverpool after the team’s loss to Chelsea in the FA cup final. In this uncertain of times, Kenny himself decided to meet the the owners alongside the chairman, Tom Werner and the principal owner John W Henry. The trio flew to Boston to meet the American owners of the club, Fenway Sports Group.
The major reason for this decision was Liverpool’s poor league performance. Although Kenny won the club a Carling Cup and got them to a runners-up position in the FA Cup, Liverpool’s league position was disappointing. The club ended up at number eight in the Barclay’s Premier League. This is their worst league standing since 1962. In 1962, the team promoted to the first division and stood at number eight then.
The club published a press statement upon Kenny’s release. The statement goes as follows, “Kenny Dalglish is to leave his post today as manager after having his contract terminated. After a careful and deliberative review of the season, the club came to the decision that a change was appropriate. It is not a decision that was reached lightly or hastily. The search for a new manager will begin immediately.”
