Benitez: Dalglish right manager for Liverpool

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."
