Dalglish blasts Man City over Carroll leaks

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has slammed Manchester City over their transfer negotiations and told them to keep their business quiet in the future, ESPN reports. Reports of a swap deal involving Andy Carroll and City striker Carlos Tevez emerged last week, which Dalglish is furious about.

Both sides have denied any offers and any negotiations over the deal, but Dalglish is particularly upset that the Premier League leaders have leaked information to the media. Carroll’s long-term future at the club has been called into question after his under-performing year at Anfield, scoring just six times since his £35m move from Newcastle. The Liverpool manager has backed the 22 year old and Carroll has insisted that he is happy at Anfield, despite his lack of starts.

Dalglish has reiterated that Carroll will be going nowhere and is firmly in first-team plans on Merseyside, despite the reports and the speculation. The Liverpool boss is not happy with City publicly disclosing their dealings and wants the league leaders to keep quiet next time the two sides are in business.

‘We’re not going to get involved in justifying what people are saying – we don’t have to. Get City to justify it, not us.We’re not talking about any specific incident, but if you are going to do business in any way shape or form, no matter what life you are in, you don’t need to disclose it until it’s done. As [Liverpool chairman] Tom Werner said the other day, there’s no point letting the facts get in the way of a good story – when he was talking about Stewart Downing being bought from a clip off YouTube. Do us a favour’, Dalglish said.
