Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel says the biggest factor in the club’s recent revival is down to the excellent man-management of interim boss Kenny Dalglish.
The 26-year-old Slovakian stopper heaped praise on the Reds messiah for the positive impact he has had on first team affairs.
It’s no coincidence that King Kenny’s arrival has coincided with a return to form that has seen Liverpool lose only two of their last ten Barclays Premier League games.
"A lot has changed at the club recently, but the most important thing has been confidence. Kenny has given us that," Skrtel said.
"With confidence in football you can achieve great things. Everybody is happy now, looking forward to every single training session, every match."
The extended run has seen Liverpool pick up key victories over Manchester United and Chelsea, which has seen the Anfield club climb steadily up the table within touching distance of European qualification.
They currently sit in sixth position, just four points behind fifth placed Tottenham Hotspur - something that wouldn't have seemed possible just a few months ago, until Dalglish successfully resurrected Liverpool’s season.
There are now calls for him to be given the full-time managerial post – sentiments echoed by the Liverpool players.
"If he gets a contract for a long time, I'll be very happy," Skrtel proclaimed.
"Every day he makes work interesting and enjoyable. We are winning games now. You can tell Kenny is a winner."
