Liverpool have earned just one point from their last three Barclays Premier League matches ahead of Sunday’s clash with Norwich City with manager Brendan Rodgers under immense pressure at Anfield as the Irishman looks to bolt the tide.
However, one man has leapt to the defence of the former Southampton boss and it’s none other than his next opponent – Norwich manager Alex Neil who believes Rodgers has nothing to prove at Liverpool after almost winning the league title two seasons ago and he believes the 42-year-old can turn things around at the Merseyside club.
“Brendan Rodgers has proved himself a manager, there’s no question about that,” Neil said.
“He nearly won the league with Liverpool. Who am I to comment on Brendan Rodgers? He’s done fantastically well as a manager in his career.
“People always say it’s a good time to play them, we’ll just look at what we do and see where it takes us.
“I don’t buy this, ‘Liverpool are in crisis’. Liverpool have got good players, they’re well managed and they’ll be a danger to any team in the league.
“It’s something all teams go through when they’re really good and then when they don’t perform as well as they should do.
“Players aren’t robots, maybe the combinations in the team aren’t functioning as well as they can or there may just be a loss of form in the group.”
