After last season’s title chasing hype and then the arrival of Super Mario Balotelli during the summer, you can forgive Liverpool fans for being a bit depressed about their side’s return to mediocrity this season.
Last season the Reds had enough fire power up top to cancel out their woefully leaky defence. But they haven’t got Luis Suarez to work his magic this season, which means the weakness of their defence is exposed more than ever.
And Brendan Rodgers has only just realised what could be causing his side’s struggles to defend corners and, unfortunately it isn’t a surprise to anyone other than the Liverpool boss. The below comments came after Liverpool’s Champions League defeat away to FC Basel last night.
What a genius…
"We defended poorly at the corner. It's becoming a symptom of… poor defending for us." – Rodgers. Genius.
