Dalglish tries to calm down Liverpool tensions

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has sought to take the heat out of his side’s trip to Old Trafford by praising Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, The Independent reports.

There is potential for a volatile fixture between the two sides following recent incidents including Luis Suarez’s ban for racially abusing United’s Patrice Evra. Dalglish has took steps to stop any tension at Old Trafford by praising his managerial counterpart, but did not give him the acknowledgement of stating his name. The two have a fiery relationship at the best of times, which has only been developed by the Suarez incident.

The Liverpool boss said: ‘If I was the FA I’d be looking at the one who is the most successful, who has had the most successful results with British players since the Premier League started. If he is not available they should go down the list from there. They should always start with the most successful and work their way through. Is that not logical? You’d probably get a ‘no’ but you have to start from there.’

Dalglish also believes that Suarez will cope with any hostility in the game at Old Trafford after he made his return against Tottenham at Anfield on Monday night. The Uruguayan starts against United and will come up against Evra, but Dalglish believes that his forward has the capabilities to cope with the pressure.
