Gerard Houllier has praised how Liverpool have been revitalised under the management of Reds legend Kenny Dalglish this season.
Houllier has called upon the bad luck of the club as to the reason why they aren’t further up the table. Liverpool have hit the woodwork 15 times so far this season and Houllier believes that their luck will soon change. The former manager has also called upon the return of captain Steven Gerrard in the New Year as a driving force behind a resurgent second half of the season.
The Frenchman said: ‘Kenny is doing a good job. He is trying to change the team and this is a transitional season. I don’t mean they won’t reach the top four – they could do that. When Steven Gerrard comes back, they will be even better, they will get their leader and an exceptional player back.
‘They are making good progress. They have been unlucky at times. Decisions have gone against them and there have been more games they dominated, but didn’t score’, Houllier said.
