Dalglish joins Liverpool´s board

5 October 2013 03:44

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has officially returned to Anfield, joining the club's board of directors.

Reds owners Fenway Sports Group put out an invitation to former player and manager Dalglish to join as a non-executive board director - an offer the 62-year-old accepted, less than 18 months after he was sacked as first-team head coach.

"It is an honour and privilege to be asked to return to Liverpool as a director of the club," Dalglish told the club's official website.

"I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this club I would make myself available - when the call came I had no hesitation.

"I am looking forward to working with the board of directors and contributing to the strategic issues that affect Liverpool Football Club.

"Liverpool has given me and my family so much since we came here just over 36 years ago and my priority is and will always be to have the club's best interests at heart."

Liverpool owner John W Henry said he was looking forward to Dalglish utilising his 'unique' relationship with the club's fan base.

"We are thrilled that the club will benefit from his experience, and passion for the club and our supporters," Henry said.

"Kenny has a unique insight on the values and traditions that helped to make Liverpool one of the greatest sporting institutions, not just in football, but in world sport.

"We are proud and honoured to have him back at the club he has represented with such distinction."

Manager Brendan Rodgers said he was blown away by Dalglish's commitment to see Liverpool regain their powerhouse status given the Reds are yet to win the English top-flight since 1989-90 - a title Dalglish won for the Reds as player-manager.

"When I met with Kenny to discuss this appointment, I was struck by the passion and drive he still has in wanting to see Liverpool return to where it should be - one of the most successful clubs in the world," Rodgers said.

"We are all together in that goal - owners and supporters, players and management and also icons such as Kenny Dalglish.

"I want people around us who have this club and what it stands for in their heart."
