Kuyt urges Dalglish resolution

Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt says it will be best for the club if Kenny Dalglish is confirmed as permanent manager of the team as soon as possible.

According to reports, Dalglish is set to sign 2-year deal to continue his stay at Anfield.

Head Coach Steve Clarke is also thought to have been offered a 2-year deal by the club’s owners, Fenways Sports Group.

“As soon as things are ready, it is better for everyone. We saw that when the new owners came in,” said Kuyt.

“The manager has done a great job so far. We have played really well.

“It’s disappointing that we were knocked out of Europe, but the way we responded, not only the players, but the management, was terrific.”

Kuyt added that Liverpool’s hopes of qualifying for Europe next year are far from over, with the Reds now just four points off fifth place Tottenham.

He said, “What’s realistic? We have to take it from game to game,” he said, with the Reds needing to finish fifth to secure another Europa League berth.

“Now we have to be ready for West Brom and to get another three points, and we will see what happens.”
