Liverpool sack 'King' Kenny Dalglish. Who will replace him?


Kenny Dalglish is no longer the manager at Anfield Road after a meeting with the club owners, John W. Henry and Tom Werner. 'King' Kenny has met the club owners in Boston, USA, at the beginning of this week in order to discuss the situation at the club and the decision was that the club will look for a new manager.

Kenny Dalglish, aged 61, was appointed as Liverpool manager in January 2011, after the sacking of Roy Hodgson. The decision is somewhat surprising, especially since this season Liverpool grabbed their first piece of silverware in six years after beating Cardiff in the Carling Cup final.

But the Premier League results were considered unsatisfactory, as Liverpool finished 8th. "Results in the Premier League have been disappointing and to build on the progress that has been made, we need to make a change," read a club statement.

Kenny Dalglish said his departure had been handled in an "honourable, respectful and dignified way". The owners said that the decision to remove Dalglish "was not reached lightly or hastily" and that the search for a new manager would begin immediately.

As for the names that are rumoured to be on the replacements list, Roberto Martinez, the Wigan boss, and former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez are considered for the job. You can also bet on who will be the next Liverpool manager, there are odds at William Hill for this:
