Liverpool owner John W Henry has given the clearest hint to date that current interim Kenny Dalglish will be handed the full-time manager’s role at the end of the season, after claiming that the Scot is the most ‘beloved sportsman’ he has ever had the pleasure of working with.
Henry is quoted as saying:
“I haven’t come across any sportsman in any sport anywhere in the world who is more beloved by the fans than Kenny.
“They love him not just for what he did on the field, but off the field too, through some very difficult times for the club and the supporters, and that relationship is really important.
