Paul Dalglish: What Liverpool are really lacking

Paul Dalglish, son of Liverpool legend Kenny, has suggested what the club lack throughout their infrastructure at the moment.

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish’s son, Paul, suggested what he feels is the main issue at the club, on Extra Time for talkSPORT.

Paul Dalglish, current manager of Austin Aztex, suggested that the sale of Luis Suarez last season exposed how bare the cupboard is at Anfield, while claiming the team lacks individuals who know how to win.

“What the deal for Luis Suarez showed is how good he was because it exposed various parts of the club,” said the Scot.

“I think what Liverpool are really lacking at the moment is people who know how to win – They don’t really have anyone who knows how to win.”

Dalglish was speaking after a 1-0 defeat for the club in the Premier League at the hands of Hull City.

The result meant Liverpool missed out on their chance to close the gap on the top four in the Premier League, which increases the likelihood that the team will be playing Europa League football next season.

Suarez is a unique player and was superb for the Reds, but everyone has moved on and the decision to sell him cannot be revisited because it can’t be changed.

In terms of the winning mentality in the team, it was strong when Liverpool nearly won the league last season and manager Brendan Rodgers has to try and find a way to remind his squad of what the good patches from last year felt like.

The side is struggling in attack, but they have to end the season well to put a spring in the step of everyone connected to the club over the summer.
