Anfield legend remains bitter at his treatment from the Liverpool board
Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has hit out at his critics in his new book ‘My Life’, especially those who were critical of his most recent stint as Manager of Reds, declaring that he had what most people would agree was a decently successfully campaign where he not only ended Liverpool’s 6 year long trophy drought, but also led them to two Cup Finals.
Dalglish’s statement are also a strong message to the club’s board which unceremoniously dumped the legendary Scot after the Reds finished the season down in 8th place in the Premier League standings.
Dalglish though was in a far from forgiving mood, stating, “What those boys achieved in 2012 was fantastic. To win the Carling Cup and to get to an FA Cup Final was beyond any expectations. People will turn around and say we finished eighth in the league, but how many points would you swap for three Wembley trips?”
Dalglish lashed out at the club for giving him just the one season in-charge, and felt that the club’s excellent Cup runs were responsible for their poor finish in the League, but the fact that the team finished the season with silverware meant the trade-off was worth it.
