Liverpool owners Tom Werner and John W. Henry have refused to let Kenny Dalglish off the hook for failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
With several players threatening to leave the club, and others feeling that they are being forced out by the manager’s tactical approach, the men in charge have had their final word.
The season started well for the club, but to many poor results saw the Reds finish in eighth place on only 52 points.
On top of that humiliation they finished below Merseyside rivals Everton for the first time in more than a decade.
There is no word yet who will replace Dalglish, but it has been rumored by the Daily Mirror that Wigan Ahtletic mastermind Roberto Martinez could be instilled as the new man in the hot seat.
Liverpool could have had a much better finish as the outfield players hit the woodwork over 30 times. Had all those ended up as goals it would have been a much better season.
While Dalglish finally lifted the Carling Cup, his failure to likewise lift the FA Cup and only securing six home victories was just not enough for the legendary No.7 to keep his place.
