“He (Ferguson) has contacted us to say congratulations – you are not at war!” Dalglish told The Mirror . “There is competition between all the old foes, but at the end of the year you send a letter of congratulations to say well done.”
The duo shared hostilities while during their managerial careers, often involved in a war of words.
“That continues and it is a great compliment. You may be rivals but to have the intelligence so that you are magnanimous enough to send in a letter saying congratulations. The people who you’ve been competing with all your life in football, they would wish it was themselves who won, it but they are proud to pay homage to other people as well,” Dalglish said.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has now delivered Champions League and Premier League title in the space of a year and Dalglish is hopeful Anfield will see more good days under the German’s guidance.
“The last two years and since Jurgen’s come in has been very positive,” Dalglish told BT Sport. “He’s been fantastic and epitomises everything Liverpool Football Club stands for. Whatever they got, they have deserved it.”
“Onwards and upwards. We have a lot more happy days to look forward to as long as Jurgen is here. Liverpool from top to bottom in the football club have been fantastically supportive,” he added.
