Carragher criticizes Rodgers’ tactics
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has hit out at the club manager Brendan Rodgers’ tactics following a 1-3 loss to Manchester United.
A stunning over head kick from new signing Christian Benteke was one of the few bright spots for the Reds in the match, and Carragher wants Rodgers to change tactics.
“I don’t understand this obsession with playing 4-3-3,” he fumed. “There is not enough support for Benteke.
“Brendan Rodgers has come to the club playing 4-3-3 and it didn’t work. The great season they had was with two strikers and how they got them into the team. It is down to the manager.
“They have got a lot of strikers, no wide players, and he continues to play 4-3-3. They have no wide players – they have only got Jordon Ibe.
“For me, Philippe Coutinho is not a wide player and I don’t understand what the point was in playing Danny Ings in that position. He didn’t give the support to Benteke.
“Think about how many strikers Liverpool have on the books – Danny Sturridge is another one who is still to come back.”
