Former Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer believes Kenny Dalglish is the perfect manager to get the best out of Liverpool striker Andy Carroll reports

The Gateshead-born forward has struggled to live up to his reputation following a £35million move from Newcastle United in January, and has been somewhat overshadowed by strike partner Luis Suarez - who has made a sensational start to life on Merseyside.

However, Shearer is confident that Carroll will come good, and shrug off the weight of his lofty price tag by finding his form at Anfield - that is if he takes advice from Reds boss Kenny Dalglish.

Shearer worked under 'King' Kenny during his prolific spell at Blackburn Rovers, which also culminated in his only Premier League title success. And the former England striker, believes the Scot is the right man to get Carroll back on song.


"If there is one guy who'll get the best out of Andy it will be Kenny," he confirmed. "He'll be able to pass on all the experience and know-how he has gained.

"Andy hasn't had the best of starts to the season, but I'm sure he will come good."

Carroll is yet to get off the mark for Liverpool this season, but will be hoping he can bury those demons when the Reds travel to White Hart Lane for Sunday's lunchtime kick-off against Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League.
