Afrcia-suarez
The Manchester United striker's UEFA suspension was reduced to two matches on Thursday morning, at the same time as Liverpool boss Dalglish was addressing the media at a press conference. The Scot is deeply unhappy at the treatment of one of his own players, Luis Suarez, both on and off the pitch. Liverpool's Uruguay international, already facing a racism charge dating back to October, has been charged with misconduct after allegedly making an obscene gesture to fans following the 1-0 defeat at Fulham on Monday. And Dalglish believes the FA should look at their own actions before tackling other issues. "I find it a bit strange the FA are supposed to be setting an example for things yet they appeal against Wayne Rooney's three-match ban," he said. "I don't think that's a good example to set." Dalglish labelled the way the FA have dragged their heels over Suarez's racism charge as a "joke". The alleged racist incident with Manchester United's Patrice Evra occurred in the 1-1 draw at Anfield in mid-October. No date for a hearing - at which Suarez will deny the allegations against him - has been set. "The fact it has taken nine weeks to get a decision on one of the other charges is a bit of a joke as well," added Dalglish. "I don't think that has helped as well. The circus which is around about him has been caused mainly by that. "That will be done sooner rather than later and we will move forward." Prior to Dalglish's press conference a screen, usually used for video analysis for the players in team meetings, was lowered into place. The manager said there was evidence available from the Fulham game which highlighted why he was unhappy about Suarez's treatment on the pitch. And he has not moved from his stance of being fully behind the 24-year-old January signing from Ajax. "For me the most important person, who is under the greater spotlight is Luis," said Dalglish. "The people at Liverpool and anyone who has any leaning to the club - be it, staff, players, supporters - they will stand by him and they know what the truth is. "If anyone wants to see the truth from the other night it is on the screen."
