Liverpool veteran Jamie Carragher feels Kenny Dalglish is capable of leading the club to Premier League glory.

Although Carragher has played most of his Liverpool games under Gerard Houllier and Rafa Benitez, he points out that Dalglish is his first manager who knows what it takes to win the league title.

"There has been a lot happening on and off the pitch in recent times," he told ESPN TV.

"Obviously we had the ownership situation, that got sorted out. Then Kenny came in, and we had massive upturn in form. Especially last season, we nearly got back into the top four and that is something we're aiming for this season.

"It's a long time since we won a trophy but we're in the Carling Cup final and still in the FA Cup. When you're at Liverpool as a player or a manager it's about winning trophies and we're very close this season and desperate to go all the way in the FA Cup.

"The top four is also a big ambition because, of course, the Champions League is a massive part of the game, and that is something we want to be a part of.

"The season's there for us, and if we can put a great run of form in between now and the end of the season we can achieve a lot. I've never had a manager before who's won the title. He [Dalglish] has obviously done that, so it's a great help to me and I've learned a lot off him."
