Sir Alex Ferguson sent a message to Sir Kenny Dalglish after Liverpool end title drought
As reported by the Metro, former Liverpool manager Sir Kenny Dalglish has revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson sent the club a congratulatory message following the Reds’ Premier League triumph earlier this week.
Liverpool ended their 30-year wait for a top-flight title, when Manchester City’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea crowned them the champions of the Premier League.
And despite the history of rivalry between our club and Liverpool, Sir Alex put that aside and extended his congratulations to the Merseysiders, as revealed by Dalglish. (h/t Metro)
“He has contacted us to say congratulations by the modern medium. It is a great compliment. You are in competition and you are rivals. But to have the intelligence so you are magnanimous enough to send in a letter saying congratulations.”
It was a nice gesture by Sir Alex put all the history of animosity aside and congratulate the Reds on their first Premier League success.
Liverpool have had a very good season, there is no denying that. And their title triumph must only serve as a wake-up call for our club to get things right and push for the title ourselves.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, we are headed in the right direction, no doubt. The Norwegian has done a fine rebuild job so far. But there remain a few skeptics who believe he may not be the right man to take us back to the pinnacle of English football.
Liverpool may have won it this term, but under Fergie we won 13 of those titles. Nevertheless, the success of our bitter rivals should serve to motivate the players and the club.
