The day after the Heysel disaster, Kenny Dalglish became manager of Liverpool Football Club. Six years later he resigned from the club, shell-shocked in the wake of the Hillsborough disaster. In between he created one of the most exciting football teams of all times. 'Kenny' explores more than just the roller-coaster career of an iconic footballer and manager. It goes behind the scenes to reveal an intimate portrait of a man who sacrificed all in the service of his club, his family and the people of Liverpool.

King Kenny
11 January 2018 | by arthurdaley69See all my reviews

I sat down to watch this on DVD with my football mad fellow Liverpool supporting son and we were absolutely blown away. For an hour and a half we were virtually transplanted into the world of Kenny Dalglish. How this man has not received a knighthood for his services to his fellow human beings never mind his contribution to football is beyond me. He helped so many people at the time of the Heysel disaster and again more noticeably at Hillsborough and through all the years since. All ultimately to his own detriment in that he had to abandon the job he loved as manager of Liverpool FC to save his health and family.

Kenny was my hero long before this DVD and he always will be . He is a true legend.

I dare anyone to watch this and find a way to not admire him greatly.

King Kenny YNWA.
