There was simply no alternative than to accept the Liverpool job once he had been asked, Kenny Dalglish today told the Sunday Telegraph.
One of the fears expressed in the initial few days following his instalment as interim manager was that Liverpool’s sustained poor form would threaten his relationship with Liverpool’s fans. Dalglish begs to differ.
“Someone asked me when I came in whether it would affect my relationship with the fans if it didn’t go well,” King Kenny said. However there was simply no alternative than to risk his reputation, he felt. “I’m here to help the football club and if someone asks you to do this job and you say no, how am I helping? That was my take,” Dalglish explained.
Kuyt praises Suarez.
Dirk Kuyt told Skysports.com that Luis Suarez will have a profound impact on the Anfield faithful and believes that his arrival is one of the factors behind Liverpool’s recent improvement.
Suarez has impressed the Anfield faithful with a debut goal against Stoke and an all-action performance against Wigan which saw him hit the woodwork twice, and Kuyt believes that he and Suarez can force a potent partnership.
“I was excited when he signed and the first thing I told the lads and everyone around the club was that we had signed a top, top player,” the Dutchman, who takes a keen interest in the Eredivisie, said. “I know I can help him,” Kuyt said, alluding to the potential partnership they can forge in attack. “He speaks Dutch after his time in Holland and that is good in terms of partnership.”
Adam wants ‘Pool move.
Charlie Adam is ready to reject a proposed summer move to Tottenham in the hope that his boyhood idols Liverpool will resurrect their January interest in him, the Sunday People reports.
Adam is believed not to be willing to go to Tottenham to fulfil a squad role and, with Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart in their ranks, does not envisage holding down a regular first team place.
As such he sees Liverpool as his dream move. The Merseysiders were unable to sort out a fee with his current employers in January, but Adam is a huge fan of Dalglish and would relish the opportunity to work with his childhood iodol if a fee can be agreed this summer.
