Liverpool boss slammed by ex player

Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin

Nuri Sahin blamed Brendan Rodgers for his unsuccessful Premier League stage at Liverpool, as the manager made him play in a position he was not used to.

The midfielder, who joined his former club Borussia Dortmund in January, thanked God for not being any longer under Rodgers’ management, The Metro Reports.

“I did not fail at Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers wanted me to play as a number 10. But I do not play behind the strikers”.

“I talked to him and asked him why he was playing me there. It is not my real position. The coach could not answer me”, he assured.

And the Turkish added: “I thank God I have left Brendan Rodgers”.

Nevertheless, the 24 year-old, who joined the Reds on loan from Real Madrid before returning to Germany in the January window, keeps a good memory of his days at Anfield.

“Still, I have no regrets. To play at Anfield was a wonderful experience. And maybe if I had not gone there I would not have been able to return to Borussia Dortmund. For that, I am happy”, the Turkey international said.

Sahin, who only played 12 games with Liverpool, is not a regular yet in Jurgen Klopp’s plans and has featured mainly as a substitute with Dortmund.
