Dalglish: Focus on player welfare

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes more attention should be paid to the welfare of players with the end of the season producing a packed fixture schedule.

The Reds have played six matches in 21 days in March and could have another 12 to play over the next seven weeks. There could be further disruption to their schedule with both themselves and May 6 opponents Chelsea in with a chance of reaching the FA Cup final. By the end of the season Dalglish's side could have played 16 games in 10 weeks.

"It is a difficult job to work out the schedule of matches because there are that many games to be played," said the Scot. "Television has been fantastic financially for clubs - no one would be in the position they are in without television - but I think the most important consideration should be players and how quickly they can turn themselves round."
