Barnes: Dalglish is the only man for Liverpool

The impact that Kenny Dalglish has made at Anfield since taking the reins in January has been quite dramatic, with Liverpool going from relegation flirters to European contenders in no time at all.

Dalglish is seemingly destined to be given the top job on a permanent basis at the end of the season, and Liverpool legend John Barnes believes the King is the only man for the hot seat.

Barnes played under - and alongside - Dalglish during his 10 years at Anfield, and knows only too well the positive impact the Scot can have on a side.

“He is a football man, he loves football. It is a match made in heaven; it is a perfect fit – Kenny and Liverpool,” Barnes told


“He is the only one who could have galvanised the fans to bring everyone back together, supporting Liverpool in the right way, meaning supporting the manager and players and everything, so hopefully he will be there next year.

“However, they still need to improve the squad by investing. [They made] two great signings in [Andy] Carroll and [Luis] Suarez but they need more investment and with Kenny being there next season, hopefully, we can have a push for the Premier League.”
