Once the romance burns out we can concentrate – Liverpool’s Dalglish

New Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits there is a certain romance attached to his return to the club.

New Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish admits there is a certain romance attached to his return to the club.

The former star striker is now in charge at Anfield after Roy Hodgson left the club on the weekend and said his return to management at the club, after 20 years, feels special.

Dalglish has taken the reins as the Reds sit 12th on the league table and he is well aware that things need to change drastically for that to improve.

But he feels that the romance has to subside before the real hard work will shine through.

"At the moment, it's a wee bit romantic, to be honest. The romance is brilliant, it's romantic for me to be back, and the supporters as well,” he told the club’s official website.

"But at the end of day, this game is not built on romance, but hard facts, and the hard facts are we've got to start winning games.

"Once we get the romantics out the road, we can get to work and we can see where we can go from there."
