Peterborough chairman says Liverpool may have to replace Brendan Rodgers

Should Liverpool stick with Brendan Rodgers?

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony was not impressed by Liverpool's performance at Old Trafford at the weekend.

The 39-year-old frequently fields questions from fans via Twitter, and was asked after the Reds' 3-1 defeat whether Liverpool should replace manager Brendan Rodgers.

The chairman of the League One side branded Liverpool's display against Manchester United as 'negative crap', also critical of the lack of impact from big money signing Roberto Firmino.

One of the problems Roberto Firmino faced was the fact he was played out on the wing, outside of his preferred role behind the striker.

With Coutinho suspended, it was the perfect opportunity to deploy the Brazilian in a central role, and in this regard Brendan Rodgers only made life difficult for himself.

MacAnthony may be in charge of a club in only 17th position in League One, but his comments illustrate how those in power in the game reflect on such a performance as Liverpool turned in at the weekend.
