Liverpool boss Dalglish: We'll protect Suarez

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says the club will protect Luis Suarez as he returns from his eight-match ban.

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says the club will protect Luis Suarez as he returns from his eight-match ban.

Suarez will return to action following an eight-game ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra when the Reds face third-placed Tottenham at Anfield tomorrow.

That is followed by a potentially-explosive trip to Manchester United – when the Uruguayan striker will come face-to-face with his accuser for the first time since the October day when he demanded FA action over Suarez’s insults.

Dalglish said: “Luis knows he’s in a place where he’s comfortable. He is loved and revered.

“The way he torments the opposition makes it understandable why they don’t enjoy seeing him play – but we will.”
