Liverpool’s interim messiah Kenny Dalglish is remaining coy on the prospect of being handed the job on a full-time basis, despite growing clamour from the club’s supporters.
Thanks to Maxi Rodriguez’s tidy close-range finish a deceptively effortless close-range swipe from the in-form Raul Meireles, Liverpool left Stamford Bridge with all three points last night, with their fourth straight victory seeing them climb to sixth in the Premier League table – though Dalglish is refusing to get carried away just yet:
“I’m only doing what I said I would come in and do, which is help. I’ll never stand in the way of progress at this football club.
“I have never had a conversation with the owners beyond the conversation I had when I came in.
“That’s where we stand at the moment and until there is more to discuss, that is where we are.”
King Kenny then aimed a barb at the recently departed Fernando Torres, who endured a largely turgid Chelsea debut – struggling against Liverpool’s stoic three-man central defense and failing to ‘hit the ground running’ in Carlo Ancelotti’s hastily re-jigged forward line before being hauled off after 65 minutes:
“Torres? Well, put it this way, I do not think any of their forwards had a day which they will be happy with.”
After the game Ancelotti conceded that his new £50 million trinket will need ‘time to adjust’ though, for now, Nando’s fledgling Chelsea career can be summed up in one photo and one photo alone…
