Dalglish plays down Lucas absence

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has tried to lessen the significance of the loss of midfielder Lucas Leiva by insisting all his players have crucial roles to play.

The Scot has to contend with being without his defensive midfielder for the rest of the season. And while the Brazil international has been key to most of what has been good about the side this season - and last - Dalglish is confident the quality of the team will absorb the loss.

"Every role is important," said the Reds boss "Lucas has had a fair bit of credit and there is not much more we can add to what has happened to him. The (defensive midfield) role is important but every single person in the team has an important role to play. We will make our decisions but we won't disclose how we will solve our problems."
