Liverpool’s Dalglish again back under-fire Suarez

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish says he will stand strong for Luis Suarez after his second Football Association charge this season.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish says he will stand strong for Luis Suarez after his second Football Association charge this season.

The Uruguayan striker was hit with a charge of improper conduct for allegedly making an offensive gesture to Fulham supporters on Monday night which adds to the charge he already had in relation to racial allegations made by Manchester United’s Patrice Evra.

But Dalglish feels Suarez has been victimized and has made it clear he will stand by his star player.

"There's been at least four incidents that we've picked out where nothing has happened, not even a charge,” the Scotsman said.

"People just jump on the bandwagon and accuse him of this, that and everything else.

"They are entitled to tackle but tackle fairly. It is only in other people's interests that if they can't stop him on the pitch, they have to try other means and that is what they are trying to do.

"Most of the things are outside our control. What we have within our control we'll get on with it and we believe we will get the benefit of the doubt at some stage.

"The people at Liverpool and anyone who has any leaning to the club - be it staff, players, supporters - will stand by him. They know what the truth is.

"If anyone wants to see the truth from the other night it is on the screen."
