Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool Manager Kenny Dalglish surprisingly opened a can of worms at his press-conference on Thursday when he questioned the reduction of Man Utd’s Wayne Rooney getting a three-game ban reduced to two games for next year’s Euro Finals.

Kenny Dalglish was quizzed about his views on the FA’s successful appeal that means Wayne Rooney’s England ban has been reduced two-matches.
He said: “I don’t think it sets a very good standard that they appeal against Wayne’s three-match ban.
I think it calls into question their own disciplinary system.

“It’s understandable because Wayne is a fantastic footballer, but it’s not as if it was a 50/50 challenge he got sent off for, is it? If it’s a straight red, it’s three games (suspension), so I don’t know how they justify diluting it.

“If they can justify diluting Wayne’s, then everybody else that appeals for a similar sending off in a Premier League game would expect to have their ban reduced.
It’s great news for England that their best player is going to be available for their last game, but I don’t think it sets a very good precedent for everybody else.”

Should Kenny have said this?
Will it stir things up between him and Ferguson, will there be a backlash from the FA and other Premier League clubs?

I hope not, what do you think?
