Rafa Benitez says Kenny Dalglish is the right manager for Liverpool.

The former Reds boss brought Dalglish back to the club in the summer of 2009 as a global ambassador.

Benitez told Football Focus: "My first idea was to bring Kenny to be involved in things close to the first team - to have a relationship with the FA and then to defend the club.

"After, when they needed a manager, he was a very good answer, a very good move because he has the support of the fans and he could bring people together. It was a great decision at this time."
