Suarez affair harmed Dalglish - Ferguson

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson believes the highly controversial manner in which Kenny Dalglish handled the Luis Suarez racism case was a factor in him getting sacked by Liverpool.

Suarez was found by the Football Association to have racially abused Manchester United defender Patrice Evra at Anfield last October. A subsequent eight-match ban and £40,000 fine was followed by Liverpool players wearing T-shirts in support of their South American team-mate, with Dalglish opting to keep the argument rumbling on rather than simply apologising.

Ferguson feels the entire regrettable episode did not do much for Dalglish's standing amongst the Liverpool hierarchy, and he said: "I wasn't surprised at Kenny leaving. (Liverpool owner) John Henry has obviously looked at that (the Suarez incident) and felt it wasn't handled in the right way. It certainly wasn't a nice thing to happen and it must have been part of it."
