Liverpool fans may have thought they had seen the last of Kenny Dalglish when he was sacked as manager last year. But the Guardian reports that the Reds legend is to return once more, this time as a non-executive director.
His role will be to contribute to strategic issues at Anfield, and while that sounds somewhat cryptic, there is no doubt he will add much behind the scenes.
Speaking after the announcement, Dalglish said, “I have always said if there is anything I could do to help this club I would make myself available. When the call came I had no hesitation.”
Some men love football, but legends love specific football clubs. Dalglish is one of those men.

While one man returns, another is reportedly dreaming of a move. Yes, it is another Luis Suarez story, with the Daily Mail publishing quotes from the striker’s international teammate Edinson Cavani revealing the Liverpool man still pines for a move to the Bernabeu.
Referring to Arsenal’s failed bid to sign Suarez in the summer, Cavani said, “I think Arsenal was not Luis’s dream move. Maybe if it had been Real Madrid then it would have been a different outcome. But of course Madrid were concentrating on a different target this summer.
“It is his dream club. And a club he thinks is worth waiting for.”
And finally, in early team news for this afternoon’s match against Crystal Palace, the BBC reports that Jordan Henderson will move into a central role to replace the suspended Lucas, while Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas or Raheem Sterling will come in on the right.
A win for the Reds will see them move back to the top of the table, with current leaders Arsenal not playing until tomorrow.
