Dalglish will win us silverware, says Liverpool chairman
Reds chairman Tom Werner is thrilled with the impact Kenny Dalglish has had at Anfield since taking charge
Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has voiced his support for Reds boss Kenny Dalglish, saying that he is the right man to end the club’s silverware drought.
The Merseysiders have not lifted a trophy since 2006, when they sealed victory over West Ham United in the FA Cup final on penalties, but Werner is confident the club is heading in the right direction under the Scot’s guidance.
“We are enormously pleased that he is our coach, he provides great leadership on the pitch,” Werner told Sky Sports.
“I’ve been with him when he’s talking to employees and when he’s talking to supporter groups, and when he talks about Liverpool, this is a man who understands the club’s history and our relentlessness when we were winning and hopefully he will bring trophies.”
Werner also moved to dampen speculation suggesting the club are considering the option of groundsharing with derby rivals Everton as both clubs ponder moves away from Anfield and Goodison Park.
He said: “There’s the possibility of building a new stadium at Stanley Park; the one thing I will say is that there have been rumours that we’re interested in the possibility of a share with Everton.
“I won’t ever say it completely [ruled out], but our fans don’t want it so I think it’s a non-starter.”
