DALGLISH blasts: "No one in football will be questioning him..."

Kenny Dalglish has leapt to the defence of beleaguered Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas after Liverpool inflicted a third defeat in 4 games on his team.

After the game, Villas-Boas vehemently denied that he was under pressure from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, and Dalglish was keen to stress that there was 'huge respect' for AVB within the game:

"I think the only ones who'll be questioning him will be yourselves [The Press]; it won't be anyone in the football profession questioning him.

"I don't know the lad, but he had a fantastic CV at Porto, and he brings it here.

"I don't know what the criticisms are going to be but I'm sure there's huge respect for him in the football profession".

When asked whether his job was safe, Andre Villas-Boas gave the following naive response:

"He didn't pay 15m euros (£13.2m) to get me out of Porto and another fortune to get me out of Chelsea"

I sincerely doubt that it will be money that stops Abramovich giving AVB the red card. As history has shown, if the Chelsea owner wants you gone, you're gone, and if things don't pick up for the Blues, I have no doubt that AVB will be thrown on the Chelsea scrap-head.

  1. Kenny knows how a manager of a EPL football would be feeling cos he has gone through the mill. It was the same pressure that made him resigned midway of 1990/1991 season and Liverpool finished second.

  2. Wrong ashfah. It was the disaster when we lost peoples lives for kenny. Not results.

  3. How long have you been following Liverpool? my guess is since 2005 when you watched the CL final.  

  4. yup... and the trigger to that resignation was the inability to make calls/changes due to the stress in the FA cup replay against Everton
