Liverpool defender Daniel Agger praised the impact of Kenny Dalglish since he returned to manage the club. He believes that the increase in confidence has helped the players perform to their optimum level:
“A big part of it is Kenny and Steve Clarke. They have made a major difference. But it is also something to do with confidence, because it is the same footballers as before. Confidence can win you games and somehow Kenny and Steve has put the confidence back in the players and the belief. I think we have shown that definitely in the last four games. It is looking good, although there is still a long way to go. What has Dalglish done? He is a positive guy. In football terms, he is positive. First of all because he likes to play positive football, going forward, and keeping the ball on the ground. and I think he is good among the players.”
The increase in belief has yet to be replicated in two high profile Reds players though: David Ngog and Milan Jovanovic. To start off with the French striker, Ngog has not featured in a Dalglish team since he came on as a substitute in the defeat to Blackpool. Absent for the Merseyside Derby and for the 3-0 victory against Wolves, the 21 year old has been an unused substitute in wins against Fulham, Stoke and most recently Chelsea. Under Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson, Ngog was Fernando Torres’s direct understudy, with all the criticism that went along with it.
After the sale of Torres, it would have been safe to presume that Ngog would be used on a more regular basis but King Kenny has opted to play forward Dirk Kuyt in the absence of the departed Torres. With the signings of Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll who will probably become the Reds favoured front two, Ngog could have his options severely limited.
