Liverpool sack manager Roy Hodgson, appoint Dalglish

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-12-20

After six difficult months, Liverpool and manager Roy Hodgson have parted company. Former manager Kenny Dalglish will take charge for the club’s hotly anticipated FA Cup match against rivals Manchester United.

AFP - Liverpool on Saturday announced that manager Roy Hodgson has left the club by mutual consent, with Kenny Dalglish put in charge for Sunday's FA Cup tie against Manchester United.

Hodgson leaves Anfield after an unhappy six month reign with Liverpool having suffered a ninth Premier League defeat on his watch at Blackburn this week.

That left the embattled side languishing in 12th position, four points above the relegation zone.

The 63-year-old former Fulham boss had hoped that a bright performance against United at Old Trafford might save his position but Liverpool's owners New England Sports Ventures (NESV) decided otherwise.

The writing looked on the wall for Hodgson when the club cancelled his weekly scheduled press conference on Friday.

In an interview with www.liverpoolfc.tv he said: "It's very painful when it's not happening and the fans make their views felt. We're all hurting in this situation."
