Brendan Rodgers wants Liverpool to show ‘class’ in title race
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants to see his Reds side to continue to show class in their pursuit of the Premier League title
Brendan Rodgers has urged Liverpool to show “class” in pursuit of their first-ever Premier League title.
The Reds are two points clear of second-placed Chelsea with four top-flight games remaining this season.
One word I always had in my mind when I joined Liverpool is ‘class.’ So that is important to me – that those values are restored
Liverpool currently head the Fair Play League after Jordan Henderson was the first Reds player to be sent off in 83 outings.
And Rodgers wants his players to remember the traditions of the club as they bid to win a 19th top-flight crown.
“We will try to do it in the right way – I take great pride in winning in the most sporting way we can,” Rodgers told the Mirror.
“If you look at us we are top of the Premier League and we are top of the Fair Play League. We don’t surround referees. We want to win, but it shows you a mark of our behaviour.
“They are the values of this club. It’s a club that has won many trophies in the past but had the humility and the class. One word I always had in my mind when I joined Liverpool is ‘class.’ So that is important to me – that those values are restored.
“I believe you can’t affect refereeing decisions. Absolutely. There will be little bits of luck that go for and against you but I like to think as a sporting team and a team that’s trying to work well we’ve got our rewards this year.”
