VIDEO: Jamie Carragher Rips Apart Liverpool Owners After Brendan Rodgers’ Sacking

VIDEO: Jamie Carragher Rips Apart Liverpool Owners After Brendan Rodgers’ Sacking

Jamie Carragher refused to hold back after hearing the news Liverpool had sacked Brendan Rodgers earlier today.

As we brought you earlier, the Northern Irishman is no longer the Anfield manager after paying the price for his side’s dismal start to the English Premier League season.

Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby was their fifth in the last six games and kept them in 10th place in the league table.

Now the post-mortem into Rodgers’ three-and-a-half-year spell at the club has began – and Carragher is ideally suited to discuss just what has gone wrong.

The Sky Sports pundit played under Rodgers in his last season as a Liverpool player and has remained close to the situation at Anfield since his retirement.

But it’s not the former Swansea boss who he has chosen to criticise heavily – he’s reserved that for Liverpool’s Fenway Sports Group owners.

According to Carragher, they have a terrible track record since coming into the club and should have got rid of Rodgers in the summer instead of allowing him to spend money in the summer and only giving him two months of the new season to produce results.

Carragher also compares them to Tottenham, describing them as a club deluded in their actual stature.

Fellow Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness was also critical of the regime at Anfield as he spoke alongside Carragher and Thierry Henry at the end of their Super Sunday coverage.

And you can see their full assessment of the situation here:
