Newcastle legend Asprilla blasts Liverpool boss Dalglish

Newcastle United legend Tino Asprilla has attacked Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish over his time at St James' Park.

Asprilla was never a fan of King Kenny.

He told the Evening Chronicle: “When Kenny Dalglish arrived at Newcastle I had heard so many good things about him.

“And I could not wait to play for him.

“Anyone who achieves so much as a player like he did you would naturally expect him to do well as a manager.

“This was not the case. Within months he had the team playing a style that was alien to most of us and he started to sell some of our star players.

“The stars like Ginola, Ferdinand and Beardsley were moved on.

“It was a team that could have gone on to win the league, having come so close in 1996.

“But instead we were broken up and the dream faded. I was sad to see Dalglish destroy the team.”
