Liverpool boss, Brendan Rodgers says he takes full responsibility for Liverpool’s poor recent form. A 3-1 away defeat at Crystal Palace epitomised the torrid season that the Reds have endured thus far. The sorry figure of Rodgers in the hammering rain summed up their performance, a picture of a lonely man looking on in desperation. Has it come to that? Desperation?
Speaking to BBC Sport after the defeat, Rodgers said, “We are very disappointed with the performance and the result, and as the manager it is something I need to take full responsibility for.”
“We need to find a solution quickly because this is very disappointing, and we have no one but ourselves to blame.
“We had to make changes in the summer and are near enough entering a transition phase. But whatever phase, we have to be better than that.
“This is the worst run my team has been on and the only way out is working together. We have to improve and very, very quickly because the games come thick and fast.”
Unfortunately, Liverpool’s title challenge last season may cost Rodgers his job should results continue to be poor. The push for promotion last term with the likes of Luis Suarez are now a distant memory, will Rodgers be given his new looking side time to gel or is he a ticking time bomb?
