Dalglish: Liverpool need to appoint winner to help Rodgers
Paul Dalglish reckons Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers needs help after 1-0 defeat by Hull City
Liverpool need to appoint a winner to help Brendan Rodgers, according to Paul Dalglish.
The Reds suffered their third defeat in five Premier League games after Michael Dawson scored a 37th-minute to seal a 1-0 victory for Hull City at KC Stadium.
Liverpool are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester United with four games remaining, leaving their Champions League hopes in a perilous position.
Speaking to talkSPORT on Wednesday morning, Kenny Dalglish’s son Paul, who enjoyed spells at Newcastle United and Norwich City, urged Liverpool to appoint someone to their staff with a history of winning.
“I don’t think it is the right thing to get rid of Brendan Rodgers now.
“I was surprised when Brendan was given the job in the first place, but now he has been in the job for three years he has shown signs of getting more used to the level of expectations and pressures and how to manage a big club.
“I don’t think it is a case of getting rid of Brendan Rodgers. I think it is more a case of trying to get somebody in to help him. There is no point taking the three-year learnings of a young manager to then go and change things.
“More important for me would be to get somebody in to help him who has been there, done it and won things. If you look at the Liverpool staff at the moment, there are not many people who have much experience at winning.
“Liverpool really want to start winning things, and somebody who can help him win would be they most sensible solution, rather than to try and change everything.”
The Reds crashed out of the FA Cup at the penultimate hurdle earlier this month after a 2-1 defeat by Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa at Wembley.
Rodgers has guided Liverpool to one top-four finish and hasn’t won any silverware since the Northern Irishman took over from Reds legend Dalglish in May 2012.
