Liverpool were holding on towards the end of the game on Saturday against Wolves and with 10 minutes to go, Kenny Dalglish decides to call upon Steven Gerrard off the bench to replace Luis Suarez. I was shocked to see Suarez being taken off the field at that stage but Kenny had his reasons.
Suarez was visibly frustrated at being taken off as he kicked a water bottle as he walked to the bench and then sat with a glum face for the remaining period of the game.
No player likes to be taken off the field, especially when the game is still on a knife edge. I would have rather seen Carroll coming off than Suarez but Dalglish has not even spoken out Suarez’s tantrum at being substituted. Dalglish simply said after the game, “Luis has been outstanding since he came to the football club, not just on the pitch but off it as well. We are very fortunate to have him.
“We look forward to many more happy days with him here because he’s a fantastic footballer.”
Do you think that Suarez was right to react the way he did? Did Dalglish do the right thing by taking Suarez off?
