Official: Liverpool confirm legend contract talks

Published Add your comment

Fenway Sports Group have confirmed that the club are in continued contract talks with manager Kenny Dalglish.

The Scot stepped back into the hot seat at Anfield in January, and has overseen an impressive turn in fortunes for the club where he made his name in previous stints as both player and manager.

Sam Kennedy, president of FSG, confirmed that the owners are keen to extend the Liverpool legend's contract beyond the end of the season, despite recent negative results against Braga in the Europa League and West Bromwich Albion in the Barclays Premier League.

"We have taken a 'wait and see' approach," said Kennedy in reference to the negotiations.

"The conversations are happening now with the appropriate people - Ian Ayre (managing director), Damien Comolli (director of football) and the ownership.

"But I do think he (Dalglish) has provided a great lift. He is a wonderful man, he is passionate about the club."

A handful of players, particularly the younger core at Liverpool, have recently expressed their delight at working under Dalglish, and the Reds still have faint hopes of making it into either the Europa League or even Champions League positions.

It's been some change under the Liverpool legend, who took over from Roy Hodgson with the club facing up to the possibility of a relegation battle.

Should the Scot extend his 'second coming' on Merseyside, FSG could be set for a busy summer with a handful of transfer targets already thought to be on the mind of the fans choice for long-term manager at Liverpool.
