Path paved for King Kenny return

Liverpool academy technical director Piet Hamberg will leave the club at the end of the season, it has been announced.

Hamberg has been in charge of things at Liverpool’s highly-rated youth academy in Kirkby for two years. His predecessor was former Reds winger, Steve Heighway.

Hamberg’s exit leaves the door open for Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish to step back into the club and join Rafa Benitez’s team of staff.

The former Reds striker and manager recently revealed his delight at rumours that he was being considered for a role at the club.

He will also be at Anfield tomorrow night, taking charge of organising the Hillsborough Memorial Game between Reds legends and celebrities, raising money for the Marina Dalglish Appeal. [Ticket Information]

Dalglish played for Liverpool between 1977-1990, scoring 118 goals in 355 appearances, also managing the club between 1985-1991.
