Liverpool boss Dalglish excited about Academy talent emerging

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish is excited about the talent coming through their Academy system.

Dalglish is optimistic the lack of local youngsters breaking through since Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen and Steven Gerrard in the late 1990s can be corrected.

"We are delighted with the progress the academy has made, and the players too," said Dalglish.

"All I can talk of is the progress that's been made here. Rafa (Benitez) put it in place over a year ago, bringing in Pep and Rodolfo and Frank McParland.

"What they've done has been brilliant. Some of the players have a lot to offer. Whether it's this year or next remains to be seen."
