Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers: I was right to criticise Jose Mourinho

Brendan Rodgers insists that he has no regrets about his post-mach comments after Liverpool's loss to Chelsea

Brendan Rodgers insists that he has no regrets about his post-match comments following Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat by Chelsea last weekend.

The Northern Irishman accused Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea of “parking two buses” at Anfield as the Blues sealed victory to severely dent his side’s title hopes.

I still think what I said was right. I knew exactly what I was saying

Rodgers softened his stance later in the week and congratulated the Portuguese coach on his side’s triumph.

However, the Liverpool manager has defended his post-match remarks and stands by his assessment of the game.

“I was a bit frustrated but I don’t regret what I said,” Rodgers said. “I am big enough to respect the man Jose is and the manager he is.

“He is a great man, I know that. It was never personal; it was a professional look at the game.

“I am never one to say that my way is always the best way. I have a huge appreciation for the way he works and his team.

“But I still think what I said was right. I knew exactly what I was saying.”
