Evans urges Dalglish support

Dalglish has presided over form worse than any of his predecessors in the last decade; Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson, despite considerable transfer funds.

Evans told the Liverpool Echo: “You have to be positive. You have to stick together in times like this, from the players, to the manager, the backroom staff and the supporters.

“It is always a difficult time when you go through periods like this as a manager. Especially as, being manager of a club like Liverpool, you know what it means to the fans. They are suffering at the moment, and having a hard time of it.
