Dalglish says Reina and Carroll must control their emotions better

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has singled out goalkeeper Pepe Reina and striker Andy Carroll for condemnation after both players let their emotions boil over in defeat to Newcastle United, the Independent has claimed.

On his return to his former club Carroll was booked for diving and later substituted after an ineffective performance, only to be seen swearing at his own bench and storming down the tunnel. Reina, meanwhile, was involved in a confrontation with Newcastle defender James Perch in which the goalkeeper appeared to use his head, drawing a red card and three-game suspension that will see Reina unavailable for the FA Cup semi-final against Everton later in April.

Dalglish said: “We have not got a problem with people showing desperation or disappointment or frustration but we need to channel it better than we have done…Pepe got a deserved red card, then Andy came off and went up the tunnel. He was frustrated.

Liverpool have now lost six of their last seven Premier League games, falling to eighth in the table behind FA Cup opponents Everton, although, ironically, their only victory in that period came against the Toffees, a 3-0 derby triumph in which Steven Gerrard scored a hat-trick.
