Dalglish feels he can never repay Liverpool debt

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has said on the eve of the FA Cup final with Chelsea that he will feel forever in the club’s debt, the North Wales Daily Post has revealed.

Dalglish first joined Liverpool as a player from Celtic in 1977, retiring in 1990 having been appointed player-manager in 1985. Dalglish remained solely as manager until 1991 when he resigned following a 4-4 FA Cup draw with Everton in which Liverpool gave up the lead four times. At the time of Dalglish’s departure the Reds were three points clear at the top of the table.

After spells with Blackburn Rovers, where he won the Premier League in 1995, Newcastle United and Celtic, Dalglish returned to Liverpool under Rafael Benitez in 2009, taking a position with the club’s academy and also as an ambassador. When Roy Hodgson, who replaced Benitez as manager, was sacked in January 2011, Dalglish was invited to take caretaker charge of the club, eventually being appointed permanently in the summer of that year.

Dalglish admitted he felt fortunate to be asked to return as manager and that he will be forever grateful to Liverpool. He said: “I was lucky to get back in. It was unfortunate for Roy but someone’s misfortune is someone else’s good fortune. I owe the club a lot more than they owe me. I will always feel that.

Because it’s Liverpool FC, for the opportunities they have given me. The football club is always more important than any one individual and I’m no different.
