Liverpool Fires Dalglish After Worst League Finish in 18 Years

Liverpool fired manager Kenny Dalglish after the 18-time English soccer champion’s worst league finish since 1994.

Dalglish, 61, met with principal owner John W. Henry and club chairman Tom Werner in Boston earlier this week. He’d been in charge since January 2011, having taken over from Roy Hodgson. Nicknamed “King Kenny,” he was a favorite of Liverpool fans following a successful playing career at the club, and was in his second spell as manager.
