Liverpool will be successful - Werner

By Dan Roan
BBC sports news correspondent

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner insists Kenny Dalglish will be given funds to strengthen the squad at Anfield.
Dalglish has taken charge for the rest of the season at Anfield following the sacking of Roy Hodgson this month.
"I would be devastated if we didn't see some improvement," Werner told BBC Sport. "We've identified some targets and hope we will be successful.
"I expect progress, we've resources to improve, we're not driven by spending, but our team needs to get younger."
One player reportedly high on Liverpool's wanted list is 23-year-old Uruguayan international striker Luis Suarez, currently with Ajax.
Liverpool paid £22m for Fernando Torres in 2007 but are likely to have to break their transfer record to acquire Suarez, who scored 49 goals in all competitions for the Dutch club last season and is valued in the region of £25m.
The appointment of Anfield legend Dalglish, who made 355 appearances for the club and managed the team from 1985-1991, was hugely popular with the Liverpool fans, who had become disillusioned with Hodgson.

Suarez could be a good deal for Liverpool if it comes off, however, I would have thought that the kind of money being spent could possibly have been utilised better in a defensive player or players

Dalglish took charge with the Reds in 12th place in the Premier League, and began his new spell with a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United in an FA Cup third-round tie.
A 2-1 league defeat at Blackpool in the league followed, before the new manager picked up his first point with a 2-2 draw in the Merseyside derby with Everton at Anfield.
The team currently lie 13th, only four points above the relegation zone, but are only four points behind Bolton in seventh with a Europa League round of 32 tie against Sparta Prague in prospect next month.
Werner said: "We feel very confident we're making progress. There's not an overnight success, our squad has been inconsistent and we expect to improve it short term.
"Kenny's got many of the qualities we've looked for in a manager, he has the confidence of the players and we'll start to see better results."
Werner added that Dalglish was in contention to remain as manager into next season and said: "We're going to consider him as a candidate. We certainly have not been forced into any decision. Kenny has proven so far so great. We're pleased."
Regarding Hodgson, who previously managed Blackburn and Fulham in the Premier League and was dismissed after less than six months at the Liverpool helm having won only seven of 20 league matches, Werner said: "He may not have been the right man for Liverpool at this time.
"We felt we needed to change. We handled it with dignity, I think quite highly of him and we all take some responsibility for what has been an inconsistent season."
Attendances at Anfield dropped significantly towards the end of Hodgson's reign and Werner added: "We were aware of the fans point of view - in a perfect world we wouldn't have had to make the change but we're in a results business."
