Reds to rotate in Europe

Published Add your comment

Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe admits squad rotation is likely to play a significant part in their Europa League campaign - starting with the qualifying play-off at Hearts on Thursday.

Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson have all remained behind on Merseyside to rest ahead of Sunday's visit of Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City. That means some fringe players will be involved in Edinburgh and Pascoe accepted that would be the case this season if they successfully progressed from the two-legged tie.

"That's the way you've got to look at it," he said. "With the squad and the players we have got here it's fantastic so you have to rotate the players because you play on a Saturday, then a Thursday and a Sunday, so it's an opportunity for all the players to perform."
