Kenny Dalglish unhappy with FA over Rooney appeal
Thursday 08 December 2011
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has accused the Football Association
of not setting a good example in successfully appealing Wayne Rooney's
three-match international ban.
The Manchester United striker's Uefa suspension was reduced to two matches this morning, at the same time as Dalglish was addressing the media at a press conference.
The Scot is deeply unhappy at the treatment of one of his own players, Luis Suarez, both on and off the pitch.
Liverpool's Uruguay international, already facing a racism charge dating back to October, has been charged with misconduct after allegedly making an obscene gesture to fans following the 1-0 defeat at Fulham on Monday.
And Dalglish believes the FA should look at their own actions before tackling other issues.
"I find it a bit strange the FA are supposed to be setting an example for things yet they appeal against Wayne Rooney's three-match ban," he said.
"I don't think that's a good example to set."
