Dalglish: Final performance not important

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish thinks a good performance is not important in the FA Cup final on Saturday - winning is all that matters.


The Anfeld side will face Chelsea in the showpiece cup final and Dalglish insists that all people will remember afterwards is the result.


The Scot also felt that the most recent trophy success is the most important one for a club as there can be no telling when another will be won.


“Just winning is the most important thing and the most memorable,” he said in the Liverpool Echo.


“And the last one, the most recent one, is the most cherished because you never know when the next one is going to come.


“You can’t undermine getting to a Cup Final and we’re delighted to be there. It’s a great achievement but once you’re there you want to win it.”


Saturday afternoon will be the second time this season that Liverpool have walked out to contest a cup final; they were victors in the Carling Cup on penalties in February.


The opponents that day were Championship side Cardiff City, but they will be expecting a far sterner test this weekend as a resurgent Chelsea will be between them and a second cup win of the season.


Roberto di Matteo’s side are also looking for cup glory to relieve them from a disappointing league campaign – they are also in the Champions League final later this month.
