Liverpool Coach Accepts Responsibility

rodgerLIVERPOOL manager Brendan Rodgers has accepted full responsibility for his team’s stuttering run of form.

Last season’s runners-up slumped to a third straight Premier League defeat at Crystal Palace, losing 3-1.

Rodgers admitted it was “a difficult moment” and that he needed to fight hard and find a solution.

He 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.”

Rodgers’s side have only won once in their last five league games and are 18 points behind leaders Chelsea.

And, with a crucial Champions League group game against Ludogorets Razgrad in Bulgaria on Wednesday, Rodgers made no attempt to hide what improvements are needed. He said his players’ passing is too tentative.

There is not enough intensity and togetherness.

Confidence is low and the team is conceding poor goals. They are not aggressive and not playing as a team.

Rodgers added: “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.”
