Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish and assistant Steve Clarke have flown to Boston to discuss the club’s future with owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner.
The Reds’ management duo have flown to the States in order to speed up the discussions, rather than Henry and Werner returning to Merseyside for talks.
Contrary to what some supporters are speculating, the talks are planned, and we understand no decision has yet been made on Dalglish’s future. The assumption that FSG wouldn’t fly him to Boston in order to sack him is incorrect, and the outcome of these talks will determine the future.
FSG will be looking for answers from Dalglish and Clarke on why they have finished the season a staggering seventeen points off their intended target of the top four, and lost as many games as they have won.
If Dalglish can persuade Henry and Werner that the mitigating circumstances surrounding this season won’t be repeated again, talks will move instead to ensuring the right players are signed this summer.
The talks will also centre around the topic of a new director of football and their involvement in the transfer process.
It could be an interesting week.
