Kenny Dalglish gets new football manager deal

13th May 2011 - Alma Shera

Kenny Dalglish has been handed a three-year contract as Liverpool football manager, after overseeing a Reds resurgence in the second half of the season.

Dalglish was brought in on a temporary contract when Liverpool sacked football manager Roy Hodgson in January, and since then the club have climbed from 12th place in the Premier League to fifth and potential qualification for the Europa League.

The 60-year-old Scot was already a legend with the fans from his previous stint as player and football manager with the club, making the decision an easy one for the management.

"I'm obviously delighted to be given the opportunity," said Dalglish.

"When we came back in January, there were no promises as to what to expect, so for me it was an ideal opportunity to prove I had something to offer."

Assistant coach Steve Clarke, who worked under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea, has also been given a three-year deal following praise from Dalglish.
