'Liverpool Are Becoming Tottenham' - Jamie Carragher Reacts To The Brendan Rodgers Sacking

We've already highlighted Thierry Henry's touching concern for Jamie Carragher following the news that Brendan Rodgers was sacked as Liverpool manager.


Once Henry had removed his hand - slowly - from Carragher's thigh, the former Liverpool player gave his reaction to the sacking.

It hasn't gone well for him this season. He needed to make a good start this season because maybe he was fortunate to stay on at the end of last season.

New staff came in. He spent £70m or £80m and ten games later, Liverpool are changing their manager. That's what I don't like about that.

Just do it in the summer. It finished poorly with the semi-final against Aston Villa and the games against Hull, Palace and that finish at Stoke. So, He was lucky to keep his job.

Carragher said that broadly he could not argue with the sacking of Rodgers.


At this moment, the owners track record in making decisions over the last two or three years is not good enough. It's miles off.

Now Brendan Rodgers, I can't argue in some ways but I would have preferred them to have done it during the summer.

He's been there three and a bit years. They haven't won a trophy and they've played Champions League football once. That's not good enough.

In the most cutting part of his analysis, Carragher boiled it down to his belief that Liverpool are turning into Spurs - an organisation which 'thinks they're a big club'.

You talk about how long Arsenal have gone without trophies. Liverpool have won one Carling Cup in 10 years.

Liverpool are becoming Tottenham - they think they're a big club - but the real big clubs are not too worried about them, who they buy or what they are going to do. That is the situation for Liverpool. Even when I was there towards the end. I'm not just blaming Brendan Rodgers and this set of players.

What are these owners of the club going to do to get Liverpool back to where they need to be. Which is consistently in Champions League and challenging for trophies.

At this moment, we think we're a big club but we are not.
