Jamie Carragher jokes about his infamous Brendan Rodgers - Tottenham comments

Brendan Rogers Press Conference Smiling - 16/02/2014

The pundit reacted to Liverpool sacking the Northern Irishman by comparing them to Tottenham. However...

Jamie Carragher has joked about his infamous Liverpool - Tottenham Hotspur comparison when Brendan Rodgers was sacked, according to Sky Sports.

Indeed, back then, the former defender suggested that the Reds are becoming just like Tottenham.

Now, however, he says he hopes Liverpool become exactly like the north London club next season!

Carragher told Sky after the game: "When Brendan Rodgers was sacked, I was talking about Liverpool turning into a Tottenham… well, next season, I hope they do!"

The only problem Spurs face now is the return of the Europa League...

Without the competition, they look a class act and you have to wonder just how much better Tottenham could have done in the Premier League in recent years were it not for Europe's second-tier competition.

The north London side possess strength in depth, however, and are full of confidence for their title run-in.

As for Liverpool, their 6-0 win against Aston Villa will also boost confidence. The top four is a distant possibility at this stage but, more importantly, the Reds have the chance to finally win a trophy later this month...
