Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers responds to Anfield banner
Brendan Rodgers was less-than-impressed by a banner calling for him to be sacked as Liverpool boss
Brendan Rodgers accused a section of Liverpool fans of having “short memories” after a banner was flown over Anfield asking for him to be sacked on Saturday.
The fly-by, which took place during Saturday’s clash with QPR at Anfield, was organised by a group of Liverpool supporters who are calling for the Northern Irishman to be replaced at the helm of the Merseyside club.
Liverpool beat the west London side 2-1 on Merseyside as they returned to winning ways in the Premier League.
Rodgers was asked about the banner, which read ‘Rodgers Out, Rafa In’ as it called for former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez to be reappointed at Anfield.
And the Northern Irishman feels that he deserves more credit after leading Liverpool to the brink of the Premier League title last season.
Rodgers told his post-match news conference on Saturday: “I thought it was Rafa’s agent that was in it!
“Football, short memories. I was sat here last year nearly winning the league, then there’s planes flying over.”
The Reds were four points behind Manchester United ahead of the Red Devils’ clash with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday evening.
Liverpool are due to take on Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Stoke in their remaining Premier League games of the season.
