Dalglish to take Liverpool development role

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is heading back to Anfield as manager Rafa Benitez step up the club's efforts to end their 19-year wait for a league title.

Dalglish, 58, who is widely regarded as the club's greatest-ever player, will have an advisory function with an emphasis on developing young players, according to reports.

The Scot, who managed the club from 1985-1991, would not be involved in coaching the first team but would make his vast experience available to Benitez.

Although the club have made no official announcement, a statement is expected before the end of the season.

Benitez, who recently signed a new long-term deal to remain at Anfield until 2014, is eager to improve the youth structure at Liverpool's Academy, which he has long complained about, and Dalglish is keen to be involved, according to well-placed sources.

Dalglish won six League titles with Liverpool, leading them to the FA Cup and League double in 1986 as well as three European Cups.

He was manager of the club when the Hillsborough disaster occurred in 1989 and is still revered by fans, who often refer to him as "King Kenny."
