London: Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has warned that he will not allow anyone to threaten the new-found harmony at the club.
Liverpool has been a far different club to the one riddled with the chaos and rifts of previous regimes since Dalglish returned to the hotseat.
He made the changes for last Sunday’s trip to Stamford Bridge, and was rewarded with arguably the greatest win in his 11 months back as boss.
Two of the main players at Chelsea were Craig Bellamy and Maxi Rodriguez — both making their first start in a month — yet both responded with awesome individual displays, a leading daily reports.
Dalglish said: “The strength of the squad is always those who aren`t playing. That is where you get your success from. At the end of the day, it is hard for the ones who don`t play. It is hard to keep them motivated and keep them going. “
“So if they come in with really good attitudes and not sulking when they are left out, it is helpful to everyone. If they are not committed to playing, it is not going to be my problem — it is going to be their problem. We will go and get people who are determined to play.”
The sight of stalwart Carragher, 33, on the bench was further proof of the strength in depth.
