As reported in the Daily Mail, Kenny Dalglish continues his crunch talks in Boston today regarding his Liverpool future with owner John W Henry.
Reports are emerging through the medium of Twitter that the 61-year-old may not be in charge at Anfield for much longer. Dalglish has been a ‘trending topic’ for much of the day with various outlets claiming he has resigned or has been sacked by the club, this only a day after the same social media outlet reported of Alex Mcleish’s departure from Aston Villa – which later was confirmed.
Dalglish has come under heavy criticism this season after the clubs hopes of Champions League qualification fell apart – this after spending around £113million on the playing staff since his return to the club. Instead Liverpool finished a disappointing 8thin the league behind neighbours Everton, this their lowest finish in the league since 1994.
Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool have so far declined to comment on the reports regarding the Scot’s future. However FSG have recently axed Director of football Damien Comolli, who was heavily, involved in the clubs negotiations regarding their recent transfer dealings. Along with Comolli, FSG also axed Peter Brukner, the club’s head of sports science and sports medicine, and director of communications Ian Cotton.
While winning the Carling Cup has brought Europa League qualification to the club, FSG wanted to push forward into the top four desperately this season. Questions will therefore be asked of Dalglish to explain why it has been such an underwhelming season for the club – with Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said to high on the list of potential replacements for the Scot.
It remains to be seen if the Twitterati will be correct again, potentially striking twice in the past two days with reports and rumours on another high-profile managerial departure.
