Dalglish gives backing to Suarez

Next Story

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has given his full backing to Luis Suarez as he believes the under-fire striker is being unfairly targeted by opposition players.

The Uruguay international was on the end of a number of challenges which failed to earn free-kicks during Monday's 1-0 defeat at Fulham. Suarez left the field frustrated and is alleged to have made an offensive gesture to the crowd at the final whistle, which has resulted in a Football Association improper conduct charge.

Suarez is also awaiting a date for his hearing to defend against a charge he racially abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra in October. Dalglish thinks he is seeing a pattern develop with opposing teams. He said: "People find him difficult to play against. If they cannot beat him on the pitch because of his ability, they will try to get into people's minds - and that's what they try to do."
