Dalglish urges Newcastle striker Carroll to listen to Capello

Liverpool icon Kenny Dalglish has urged Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll to take everything Fabio Capello chooses to say to him on-board.

In his column for the Mail on Sunday, Dalglish wrote: "If you know anything about football, you will have the utmost respect for Fabio Capello. And if you don't respect him, you'll not be invited back.

"The old guy knows a hell of a lot more than Andy Carroll does, that's a certainty. And I think their meeting this week could be one of the best things to happen to a 21-year-old with the world at his feet.

"I'm sure Carroll will be full of respect for the England manager. He will be aware of the amazing list of players Fabio has worked with - Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit, Paolo Maldini, David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Carlos and Wayne Rooney among them.

"If Fabio asks to speak to Carroll privately this week, which he is likely to do at the team hotel, well away from the glare of publicity, I'm sure the player would sit there and listen to every word, and it might just be the nudge he needs to make the penny drop."
