Henry prefers to keep things behind closed doors

Liverpool FC owner John Henry has once again refused to reveal any reported contract negotiations going on behind the scenes – amid reports Kenny Dalglish has been offered a 2-year deal to become permanent manager at the club.

Reports emerged last week that Dalglish, and Head Coach Steve Clarke, had been offered long-term contracts, but Henry insists it is not the Liverpool way to drag out such matters in public.

He did however, once again, heap praise on Dalglish for his turnaround in the club’s fortunes since taking over as caretaker boss from the departing Roy Hodgson in January.

“What is going on in that regard is private. It is something called ‘the Liverpool way’ and you do these things behind closed doors.

“I am not going to talk about these things. He has done very well.”

When asked about the change in mood at the club following Dalglish’s arrival and Hodsson’s exit, Henry added, “Absolutely, it’s all very positive. Someone was saying that people weren’t happy here. But I think since that person left, people are happier.”
