Dalglish will 'try' to enjoy Wembley return with Liverpool

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says he'll 'try' to enjoy today's Carling Cup final against Cardiff City.

The Reds have not won a trophy since the FA Cup in 2006 or been in a final since being beaten by AC Milan in the Champions League the following year.

Since then the personnel has changed significantly but Dalglish has faith in the experience of his squad to bring home some much-needed silverware.

"I'm not very emotional. I suppose like everything else in life every person is not going to act the same to situations," said Dalglish, who has made 27 appearances at Wembley as a player and manager.

"Emotion and nerves will be helpful to some and detrimental to others but is part and parcel of football and it is how you handle it.

"There are a lot of people with different personalities who will handle it totally differently.

"But if you are not going to enjoy getting to Wembley you have a bit of a problem. It didn't affect us (the all-conquering Liverpool side he played in) too badly I don't think."
