Liverpool are planning on bringing legend Kenny Dalglish back to the club, according to a report in the Daily Telegraph.

It claims Anfield officials want the club’s previous manager to take up the ambassadorial role he held before he took over the team following Ropy Hodgson’s departure in January 2011.

Dalglish was still managing the club until last summer when a League Cup victory and FA Cup final appearance were deemed not enough to counterbalance poor performances in the Premier League and an eighth place finish.

Dalglish was replaced by then Swansea City manager Brendan Rodgers, but the report says Liverpool’s owners are keen for him to return to the club just a few months after sacking him.

It claims they feel his presence at Anfield is a boost, not just in terms of the adoration in which he is held by the Kop but in a wider more commcercial sense, due to his stature in the game.

Dalglish is one of the most famous names in Liverpool’s history, having won six league titles and three European Cups with them as a manager, as well as two First Division titles as manager of the club.
