Liverpool legend Dalglish confirms India plans

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish has confirmed he's moving to India.

Dalglish wrote in the Mirror: "The formation of the Indian Super League, scheduled to play its first season from January to March next year, is great news for football.

"There is massive interest in the English Premier League in the sub-continent but in terms of getting people to play, India is largely an untapped market.

"It will enrich football if the game develops in India and that’s one of the reasons I said I’d be happy to help promote the new venture out there.

"As I understand it, the league will be built around eight teams in the country’s major cities and is designed to capitalise on the growing interest in the game.

"I’ve seen the reports saying I’ll be making a return to management over there, but that’s a little premature. I’m delighted to be part of it, but quite what my role is going to be is still up for discussion."
