Dalglish does not blame England for Gerrard injury

Steven Gerrard is expected to miss Liverpool’s Premier League meeting with Arsenal on Saturday after picking up a hamstring injury on England duty, but Reds manager Kenny Dalglish does not blame the Three Lions hierarchy, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Gerrard was withdrawn by caretaker England manager Stuart Pearce after just half-an-hour of England’s eventual defeat to the Netherlands, but Dalglish revealed that if he was England boss, he would have picked Gerrard as well.

Dalglish said: “If I was in charge of the England team Steven would have been playing for me as well. If I am the manager of any team in the world I am going to select him for it.

Gerrard has played in only 11 Premier League games this season, making a further eight appearances in cup competitions for the Reds. The 31-year-old’s brief England appearance on Wednesday was his 90th cap for the national team and first in over a year after injury has disrupted much of Gerrard’s recent campaigns.

The Liverpool captain was overlooked by Pearce to skipper England in favour of Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker despite having served as vice-captain under deposed leader John Terry. The Liverpool Echo also notes that Gerrard will consider his international future after Euro 2012.
