Kenny Dalglish praises John W. Henry’s impact at Liverpool – EPL News
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has hailed the impact the Reds owner, John W Henry, has had on the Merseyside club and has labelled the American billionaire as the ‘perfect owner’.  
Henry’s Fenway Sports Group took over in October 2010 and made an immediate impact at the Merseyside club with huge influx of money and the decision to appoint the club legend, Kenny Dalglish, as the manager.
FSG relieved then-manager, Roy Hodgson, as the Merseyside club were struggling on the wrong side of the English Premier League standings and appointed Dalglish.
Henry followed the appointment by splashing over £50 million to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle United and Luis Suarez from Ajax in the January 2011 transfer window.
Despite having started the season in worse of fashions, Liverpool finished sixth in the premier league, owing to the bold decision of appointing Dalglish and the players brought in.
Moreover, FSG have already spent over £40 million to sign Charlie Adam from Blackpool, from Aston Villa in the current summer transfer window. Consequently, the Reds are aiming once more for a top four
finish next season.
Dalglish has outlined that the club owner, John W Henry, has been very supportive and believes that any club can flourish under the guidance of the FSG owner.
The Reds’ manager has told the reporters, "If anyone has a better owner than John Henry, then they have done very well for themselves. He’s fantastically supportive.”
Dalglish has revealed that the Reds’ owner Henry is passionate about Liverpool and is determined to bring success to Anfield. The Scotsman believes that Liverpool are very fortunate to have such supportive owner and has asserted that every member of the
club is fully determined to repay the faith shown by FSG.
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you what he does or how he helps, but he’s genuinely a good fella, just a good lad. He cares passionately about the club and wants it to go in the right ­direction. We are fortunate there is nobody pulling in the wrong
direction. It’s helpful if everyone is singing the same song," Dalglish concluded.
Moreover, the manager defended the club’s spending spree in the last two transfer windows and has hinted the Reds are still active in the transfer market. The Merseyside club are looking to bring a defender as their defence was hugely exploited during the
pre-season friendly matches, where they conceded 15 goals in five matches.
Liverpool have reportedly registered interest in  Newcastle United’s want-away left-back, Jose Enrique, and the Spanish defender is expected to complete his move to Anfield in the next few weeks.
