Liverpool Board Back Kenny Dalglish

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 13 April 2012, 09:58

Liverpool Chairman Tom Werner has publically assured Kenny Dalglish that his job is safe and that he has the full support of the board. Speculation was rife that Dalglish’s job was under threat following the departure of the club’s Director of Football Damien Comolli on Thursday. The news led many to speculate that King Kenny was also on his way out but Werner has been quick to come out and back his manager.

Dalglish has come under fire in 2012 following a run of wretched results in the Premier League, with The Reds winning just three of their last 14 matches, meaning they face a fight to finish in the top 10. Dalglish has also been criticised for his expensive signings as many of whom have failed to live up to their price tag. However, it has been a different story in the domestic cup competitions, with Dalglish winning the club the Carling Cup trophy in February and on Saturday Liverpool face fierce local rivals Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley. So for the time being the 61-year-old is safe but come the summer there could be more major changes at the club.

The departed Camolli has paid the price for Liverpool’s over indulgence and subsequent failings in the transfer market. In 2011 the club splashed out nearly £115m on the likes of Andy Carroll (£35m), Luis Suarez (£22.7m), Stewart Downing (£20m) and Jordan Henderson (£16m). The club began the 2011/12 season expected to be in the running for a top four finish, however, a number of poor results and disappointing performances by their costly signings mean Liverpool can now only hope for 7th placed finish at best.

Meanwhile reports have today emerged linking the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Louis van Gaal to the director of football vancancy, with Johan Cruyff also believed to be in the mix having apparently impressed in his roles with Ajax and Mexican club Chivas.

Liverpool travel to Wembley on Saturday looking to reach their second cup final of the season. Standing in their way are Everton, who most recently reached the FA Cup final in 2009, where they lost 2-1 to Chelsea. Paddy Power have installed Liverpool as the 6/4 favourites, while Everton can be backed at 15/8, with a draw priced at 9/4. Luis Suarez leads the first goalscorer market with odds of 11/2, whereas Everton’s Nikica Jelavic has been handed odds of 7/1 to open the scoring. If any player is shown a Red Card in this game, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match.
