Transfer Rater: Ox to Everton, Obiang to Anfield?


Kenny Dalglish admits he wanted Liverpool job

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish claims that he was interested in taking over the vacant managerial role at Anfield before the club appointed Roy Hodgson.

Dalglish was linked with the position after the departure of Rafael Benitez, but the man who last brought the title to Anfield in 1990, claims he was not wanted by the Liverpool hierarchy.

"When it was clear Rafa was going, Christian Purslow asked me to get involved in the selection process for the next manager,'' Dalglish wrote in his new book - Dalglish in his own words'. "I had to let them [the board] know my real views. I wanted the job. I couldn't miss the opportunity.

"One day, I was in a meeting with Christian and the chairman, Martin Broughton, and I formally put my name forward. 'We don't want you, Kenny', came the reply from Christian and the chairman. Fine. That's their prerogative. They explained they had different plans for me, a position with greater longevity."

The 59-year-old also claims he had no problem with the appointment of Hodgson, but maintained that it was the right time for Benitez to leave the club.

"It was right for everybody that Rafa Benitez left - for him and for Liverpool Football Club.,'' he wrote. ''There just comes a stage in every manager's career when the board says, 'You've been good for the club but we feel it would be best if you go'.

"Sometimes it works the same way for a manager - 'I've done my time. There's no animosity but it's time to have a go somewhere else'.''
