Dalglish slams officials over fans



Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has criticised officials for taking supporters for "granted" ahead of next month's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Rail maintenance work, coupled with a lack of trains following a match that kicks-off at 5.15pm local time (1615GMT) at Wembley in north London on May 5, have left many Reds fans with awkward journeys from and back to the north-west.

That is, if they can get hold of a ticket, with Liverpool's allocation of 25 000 out of a Wembley capacity of 90 000 some 7 000 fewer than they received for their semifinal against Merseyside rivals Everton.

"Sometimes that is the problem when fans are taken for granted – not just our fans but those at all football clubs," said Dalglish.

"That is the decision which has been made and it's been made outside of our control," the Liverpool great added.

"It could have been made a bit easier for them but they are fantastic fans and they will get there."
