Dalglish comes to Carroll's defense

MOST COMMENTED

After England national team coach Fabio Capello gave Andy Carroll some friendly advice -- via the media -- to stop drinking, Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish told Capello to get his facts straight before he lectured.

Dalglish says that Carroll hasn't reach 100 percent form, not because of excessive partying, but because he is still recovering from a knee injury last season -- the same injury that kept him out of the England team for the 2011 European U-21 championship.

"We have said often enough that Andy wasn’t properly fit last season because of a knee injury but that seems to fall on deaf ears," said the Liverpool manager. "We have actually been very pleased with the level of fitness he has achieved this season. And Andy is wiser than a lot of people think. I don’t think Andy’s lifestyle is anything like what you would like it to be to get stories. I think it’s unfair to discuss Andy any further than we have done already. It’s totally unfair on him. Everyone wants to talk about it but we have said what we have had to say. I think that is us finished. What we have said is very pertinent. And, to be fair, very honest.”
