FA investigating Rodgers comment’s.


The FA are currently investigating comments made by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, after he hit out at referee Lee Mason, following Liverpool’s 2-1 defeat away at title rivals Manchester City. 

Rodgers claims that Mason, who is from Bolton, and is a supporter of Bolton Wanderers, was wrongfully put in charge of the crunch fixture, claiming that the Geographical distance between Bolton and Manchester was a key componant in many of the decisions. 

Rodgers was upset that a clearly good goal from teenage sensation Raheem Sterling was chalked off, despite the youngster timing his run perfectly. 

He also believes his side should have had a penalty in the closing stages of the fixture, which City won thanks to an error from Simon Mignolet. 

Rodgers slammed Mason in the post match interview… stating. 

“My players were outstandingbut they had no help from the officials. I thought they were horrendous in terms of their performance.”

“We never got any decision. For the offside one they were not even on the same cut of grass. You need to get those right at this level. It’s not a difficult one.

“We did not get a free kick when Lescott came through the back of Luis and it’s arguable that we should have had a penalty at the end. He can’t jump because he is tugging at his shirt.

“Hopefully we don’t have a Greater Manchester ref again. I was surprised that we played in Manchester and had a referee from Greater Manchester. I’m sure we won’t get one from the Wirral.”

Ironically Mason took charge of this fixture two years ago – and gave Liverpool a penalty that won a Carling Cup semi-final.

Rodgers may be in hot water for his rap which came after City won a thriller despite the controversy and went second top of the table, leaving his side fourth.  

Raheem Sterling was robbed of a goal by a clearly-wrong offside flag and Luis Suarez had his jersey pulled in the box by Joleon Lescott but was ignored by Mason, Rodgers went onto say in his interview. 

Liverpool slipped to 4th after the defeat, in another topsy turvy day in the Premier League.
