Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he was disappointed to see Liverpool take the decision to sack Brendan Rodgers.
The announcement was released shortly after Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, and the French tactician shared his immediate thoughts on the matter, as reported by Sky Sports.
Rodgers parted company with the club despite securing a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park in the Merseyside derby with Everton on Sunday, with the decision being announced just hours later.
With Liverpool struggling in Europe after back-to-back draws against Bordeaux and Sion, as well as some inconsistent performances domestically which have left them outside the top six in the Premier League, the club hierarchy essentially decided that it was time for a change.
However, Wenger added that he thought that Rodgers had done an excellent job at Anfield considering that out of all the managers that the club have had in recent years, he went the closest to winning a Premier League title in 2013, as reported by Sky Sports.
It remains to be seen who replaces him at the helm, with the decision potentially reenergising the club. In a season in which the title arguably looks up for grabs considering that none of the title favourites have shown real consistency as of yet with Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal all suffering setbacks, it could have a significant impact on the title race.
