Liverpool football manager looking for a spark

18th March 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Liverpool football manager Kenny Dalglish was left bemoaning a lack of creativity as his side crashed out of the Europa League.

Trailing 1-0 to SC Braga from the first leg, the Reds were unable to break the deadlock at Anfield, leaving the competition following a goalless draw.

New £35 million signing Andy Carroll started for the home side, though Liverpool created few chances without injured captain Steven Gerrard and the cup-tied Luis Suarez.

"You need to be really strong creatively if you are going to break down a very organised side or you need a bit of luck and we certainly have not had much fortune over two legs," said Dalglish.

With a finish of fifth place or higher required in the Premier League to achieve European qualification next season, Liverpool face a major challenge in their upcoming football games to overhaul a six-point deficit to Tottenham, currently in fifth place.
