Dalglish received a letter of appreciation from Ferguson 

The Guardian claims Sir Alex Ferguson sent a letter of appreciation to Kenny Dalglish after Liverpool secured their first Premier League title.

At Manchester United the best accomplishment was to knock Liverpool off their perch, famously claimed Ferguson. Wishing his former rival well, he was gracious enough to mark Liverpool’s return to the summit.

“He contacted us to say congratulations by the modern medium,” Dalglish said. “You go through the older generation – Fergie at Manchester United, Brian Kidd, Mike Summerbee; all the old foes who went through football at the same time as us – and at the end of the year you sent a letter of congratulations to say well done. That continues through.”

“It is a great compliment. You are in competition and rivals but you are magnanimous enough to send a letter saying congratulations. Everyone is in the same game, aren’t they?”

The former manager of Liverpool paid tribute to the captain’s influence Jordan Henderson. For the second time, Dalglish was Manager when Liverpool signed Henderson from Sunderland in 2011 and said: “I saw someone in that role that was better than what we had at the time. So he was very calm when you get into the talks and his dad came with him, which was a positive sign for me.

“He was determined to be a success in football. He is the only Liverpool captain who will have lifted this trophy but also the Club World Cup as well. He is up there with the captains who have picked up the Champions League.”
