Dalglish retains title ambition

Next Story

Kenny Dalglish says he retains the ambition of winning the title with Liverpool, just as every other Reds supporter does.

The Merseysiders last lifted the league crown almost 22 years ago, and have not recorded a triumph during the Premier League era.

Liverpool have, of course, come close on a number of occasions, most recently being pipped at the last by great rivals Manchester United in 2009.

There was a genuine optimism that Dalglish would deliver the Premier League trophy for Liverpool this season, having spent significantly on new recruits last summer.

This, however, has not transpired and the Anfield legend has seen his managerial credentials questioned with the Reds suffering a serious slump in league form.

Liverpool find themselves closer to the relegation zone than the top of the table - some 31 points behind the leaders and 17 above the bottom four - and it would be fair to suggest they have had a poor season in the league at least.

And, although Dalglish is not prepared to get ahead of himself, he has outlined winning the Premier League title as an ultimate ambition.

"It would be fantastic for Liverpool Football Club to win the league," he told his weekly press conference.

"We've won plenty in the past. It's been a while since the last one, and it's an ambition for everyone who supports Liverpool to see them win the league title.

"But, at the end of the day, there are a lot of other games to play other than league matches, and we want to compete in every game we play in.

"I'm not obsessed with anything other than the next game."
