Speaking to The Mirror, Savage - who was a Liverpool supporter as a boy - revealed his disappointment with Liverpool's handling of recent. He said:
"It makes me sad to see how badly he [Dalglish] mismanaged the Luis Suarez business. His decency as a person and love for his club forced him into a position where he circled the wagons to protect his player and team and ended up defending the indefensible.
"However, King Kenny has not mismanaged Liverpool FC. We focus too much on what goes on off the park and not enough on it and the fact is that they are massively better than they were under Roy Hodgson.
"And if, as I expect, Dalglish lifts at least one trophy this season - and I think they could well do a Cup double - then this sorry mess will all be thankfully forgotten".
It's probably true to say that Liverpool are 'better' now than under Hodgson, but 'massively' better? 'Marginally' better is probably a more accurate description.
When it comes to league form, style of play is probably the only thing that's better under Dalglish; under Hodgson, the club scored more goals, drew less games, and won more games at home.
