Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has praised the club’s principal owner John W. Henry, outlining how supportive the American has been and how he cares passionately about the football club.
Dalglish has been backed in the transfer market with forty odd million spent so far on Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam – with one or two more signings expected before the window shuts at the end of the month.
Kenny said “Spending money does not guarantee you success. (But) I don’t know of any football club that has ever had success that has not spent money. So it is necessary.”
“But it’s even more important to spend it wisely. We’ve acted responsibly in the transfer market and we’ve also acted responsibly and respectfully with the owners, who have been fantastically supportive during the window.”
“If there is a better owner that is as supportive as John W Henry, then they have done very well for themselves because he’s fantastically supportive, a genuinely good fella.”
“He cares passionately about the football club and he wants it to go in the right direction.”
Liverpool have been strongly linked with a move for Newcastle left back Jose Enrique, and Bolton centre back Gary Cahill.
