Dalglish praises side for keeping Europe in sight
Friday 08 April 2011
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes his players' achievement in keeping hopes for European qualification alive should not be underestimated. The Scot took over from Roy Hodgson in early January with the club in mid-table, and with few major changes has lifted them to sixth in the Premier League.
"I don't think sixth is where we want to be in," Dalglish said, "but credit to the players because the lads that have got us to where we are deserve great credit for it. I don't think they could have done much more. We've won some games maybe people thought we couldn't win. At the end of the day, we will add up the points at the end of the season and see where we are."
