I got word that the club might be offering the manager position to Roy Hodgson against Kenny Dalglish’s wishes.
Kenny was put in charge to help find Rafa’s replacement, however as he started looking he realised that there was really no one qualified more than himself to take over as gaffer. From what I heard Kenny went up to Christian Purslow and told him that he felt that he was the best person qualified for the job. Purslow turned Kenny down and instead informed him that they were going to offer the position to Hodgson instead. Kenny did not want the manager’s position for pride and glory but his aim was to help the club in this moment of crisis.
It is really puzzling why Purslow and the gang would chose Hodgson over Dalglish, all you have to do is look at the stats of both. Hodgson’s moment of glory has been the final of the Europa League last season however his win percentage at Fulham is at only 39.37%. Kenny in return won the titles with Liverpool, Blackburn and Celtic and he even his “bad” season at Newcastle ended with the Toon qualifying for the Champions League.
Without a doubt Kenny is devastated by the news, he has given most of his life to the club he loved. It is shameful that they turn down like this and I will not be surprised if he resigns from the club following this.
Good luck Kenny, you will always be a legend to us.
