Jordan Henderson lost control of the Liverpool players during their Europa League clash with Besiktas, and Brendan Rodgers is not happy about it…
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hit out at his players over their “etiquette” during the Europa league clash with Besiktas, revealing his disappointment over the way they acted before taking the penalty that won them the game, as reported by Caught Offside.
The Merseyside manager was furious over his players’ behaviour, but naturally pleased with the eventual outcome.
“I don’t like the etiquette – you don’t like to see four or five players around a football looking to take it,” he said.
“[Jordan Henderson] respected that Mario is an outstanding penalty-taker and was happy to give it to him to take.”
The penalty proved to be the decisive goal, with Liverpool winning the European first leg 1-0.
Rodgers will be hoping for a better showing next game, as the Europa League is a fantastic chance for silverware this season.
