Liverpool Coach Kenny Dalglish openly stood behind the Liverpool squad that faced Newcastle over the weekend ended the game with a 2-0 defeat.
Dalglish said moving Andy Carroll of the game 11 minutes to fulltime was necessary as Carroll was of really happy with his late substitution as he kept swearing while storming into the tunnel staring the direction of his coach; he was replaced by Dirk Kuyt.
Earlier, goalkeeper Pepe Reina created a drama around himself that has caused him the FA cup semi-final against Everton which will be holding at Wembley as he got a red card for harassing James Perch; a Newcastle defender as it was obvious that Pepe Reina head butted the player.
According to Dalglish; the frustration and disappointment led to what Liverpool fans and management would not have loved to see as the players as whole acted in frustration and disappointment mostly on the part of Pepe and Carroll.
He however asked his players to next time channel their desperation, frustration and the likes into better use not disrupt their games to the extent of being disgraced.
Andy Carroll for one did not channels his desperation well enough as he was desperate to win the day by every means right from the start of the game as in frustration he was booked for diving, he was all the more desperate because he was playing against his former club where he left to play for Liverpool which explains why he wanted to win the day.
Booing was the intent of Newcastle supporters to give to their former player but on studying the event on field but decide against the move as Newcastle got a 2-goal lead against Liverpool.
Carroll’s coach maintained that him getting a yellow card for the clash with Newcastle goalkeeper was not fair enough as he never meant what happened that even if he even he was able to go past the goalkeeper he still would have fallen over because he had no balance at that moment in time.
