Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez and Kenny Dalglish have talked about a return for the former Anfield legend but a role for the Scot has yet to be finalised. Benitez is optimistic he can work with the 58-year-old, who had a 14-year spell at Liverpool before quitting as manager in 1991.

"It is true I was talking Kenny and the conversation was really positive," said Benitez.

"He wants to help any way he can and we will talk in the future.

"The conversations are there. I am really pleased and I think he is really pleased too."
