The Greats – Paisley on Dalglish

Few great players make the transition into management. The reason is that the great players are normally like soloists in an orchestra. They perform alone and tend to look down on those of lesser ability. That was never Kenny. He was like a conductor who brought others into play. He understood that not everyone was blessed with the greatest skill. He had patience both as a player and as a manager.”

Bob Paisley on Kenny Dalglish, 1991
