LIVERPOOL LEGEND KENNY Dalglish has today left the club again.

The Anfield outfit will confirm that the man known as ‘King Kenny’ by those on the Kop is no longer manager.

After just over a year in charge on Merseyside — for the second time — the Scot leaves in the wake of a disappointing season, in which they finished eighth in the Premier League.

A Carling Cup victory wasn’t enough to satisfy the Fenway Sports Group and having been summoned to Boston earlier this week, the decision was made.

BBC Five Live are reporting that Liverpool have already appoached a manager in a Premier League job. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is the favourite for the post with bookies, followed by former Reds chief, Rafa Benitez; Jose Mourinho, Martin O’Neill and then Frank Rijkaard.

Who do you think should get the job? Let us know in the comment section below…
