Dalglish backed by former Liverpool boss Evans

Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans has called for supporters to get behind the Reds’ current boss Kenny Dalglish after a run of six defeats in seven Premier League matches caused unrest amongst a section of the club’s support, the Daily Mail has reported.

The Mail notes that Liverpool’s current run is their worst sequence of results since 1953-54, when the club was relegated at the end of the season. But Evans, who managed Liverpool between 1994 and 1998, has said results will only improve if everyone is pulling in the same direction. He added: “You have to be positive. You have to stick together in times like this from the players, to the manager, the backroom staff and the supporters.

Evans, who played nine times for Liverpool in a brief playing career, was part of Liverpool’s famed Boot Room, the name given to the brain trust that guided the Reds under Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley and Joe Fagan. Evans served as a coach under the three as well as Dalglish after the Scot took the manager’s job for the first time in 1985, eventually becoming manager after Graeme Souness left Anfield in 1994.
