Dalglish fumes at clash timing

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes the scheduling of Tuesday's Carling Cup quarter-final is "irresponsible".

The Scot was outraged when he discovered his side would have to play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge two days after Sunday's league match at home to Manchester City. Liverpool held discussions with the Premier League, Football League and Sky television in an attempt to get one of the games moved but it was to no avail.

Dalglish is likely to make a number of changes for their second trip to Chelsea in just over a week and he told liverpoolfc.tv: "Forty-eight hours is a bit irresponsible for the people who've organised the dates of the matches. It's not just us, it's Man City."
