Liverpool boss Dalglish not interested in Man Utd title No19 prospects

After their draw at Arsenal, Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish couldn't care less about Manchester United now closing in on title No19.

United are on the brink of surpassing Liverpool to become England's most successful club.

"Sadness? In my eyes we are still the best club in English football, if not world football, so I am not very sad at that," Dalglish said.

"The surprise is that they [Liverpool] have not won the title for a long time - that is the surprise. But it's not sadness - it's just a fact of life.

"They never acquired enough points in any season since 1991 to win it.

"They came close a couple of years ago when Rafa [Benitez] went close, had a fantastic record against the so-called top four, but just couldn't get it over the line."

Dalglish added: "It will be fantastic to get back there, but you need to hit the standards other teams have set.

"That is four games - United, [Manchester] City, Arsenal and Chelsea. We only dropped two points and that was today."
