Kenny Dalglish has reiterated Steven Gerrard’s sentiment that Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez will be an unstoppable strikeforce for Liverpool, with the golden signings already showing potential for greatness in both domestic and international games.
“I don’t think he [Gerrard] is a bad judge if he thinks Andy and Luis are a very strong strikeforce," Dalglish told reporters.
"Andy has a bit to go to get himself up to match fitness but he came in here for five-and-a-half years, not a few months.”
Carroll has shown potential for Liverpool since he moved from Newcastle two months ago, and while the striker hasn’t scored a goal at Anfield yet, Dalglish is confident that Carroll will star for Liverpool when he comes into form and recovers from injury.
“We’ll be patient and when he’s ready, he’s ready. We won’t put any timescale on it and we’ll take it as it comes,” the Liverpool caretaking manager said.
Carroll scored his first international goal for England in a friendly with Ghana on Tuesday night, and Dalglish thinks this will up his confidence when he returns to playing domestic football for Liverpool this weekend.
“The 60 minutes he got for England was very helpful in his recuperation and his fight to try to get back to full fitness.
“We’re delighted with them. Whether they’re the best or not is subjective, everyone’s entitled to their opinion.”
