Dalglish calm over Reds future

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish revealed after the win at Sunderland that he has not started contract talks with the club - and is happy to wait.

The Reds took their tally under the Scot to 20 points from 10 Premier League games with a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light which leaves them four points adrift of fifth-placed Tottenham, who have a game in hand.

They did so amid much speculation over Dalglish's future, but he is remaining relaxed as he plots the way forward on the pitch.

He said: "As regards the job, I have seen in the papers I have asked for four years. Well, I don't know who I asked.

"I saw that I was offered two (years) - I don't know who sent that in.

"Somebody said have I spoken to the owners - of course you speak to the owners, you speak to them regularly during the week.

"It's their club and they are fantastic owners and they are very supportive owners.

"But there have been no detailed discussions about next season, so until there is something that's to be said, we cannot make it up.

Liverpool would be stupid not to hand him a contract more ealry than possible. I guess the administration knows that he is a 100% loyal to the club and they abuse it. Dalglish deserves better! The Only man in Liverpool that I respect. (And Suarez...)

He is a true Liverpool fan, thats for sure. And he has done well so far. But, he needs to run Liverpool for more than a month or two to prove that he is good enogh. I can understand why they wait.

We need more British managers. Get him signed up!

I agree with Kings. The owners want to make the best possible decision, and so I'm sure they will hand him a contract after the season ends. I can't wait to see what players he will sign over the summer!
