As the new Premier League season gets underway today, Kenny Dalglish says Liverpool will be judged for performances on the pitch rather than off it.
What a difference a year makes. With boardroom politics rife this time last year and Reds fans seeing the dawn of a new season with Roy Hodgson in charge having had a less than comprehensive summer transfer ‘spree’.
“We will be judged by what happens on the pitch, rather than off it, but at the moment it’s positive,” Dalglish told the Daily Mirror.
“The five guys we’ve brought in have strengthened the quality and improved the depth of the squad, and we are a lot stronger than last year.”
Dalglish also hinted that the club are looking for a good cup run this season to finally bring some silver wear to Anfield for the first time since 2006’s FA Cup win.
He added, “You need to win a lot of games to win a championship, but you don’t need to win as many to lift a cup, so we will just focus on getting as many positive results as we can.”
