Former Liverpool captain Jamie Redknapp has dismissed claims by Brendan Rodgers that there is a campaign aimed at getting him out of the club.
The Liverpool boss has been under growing pressure following a slow start to the season and decided to hit back after calls for him to lose his job started to grow.
But Redknapp doesn’t agree with the claims that there is a conspiracy designed to remove Rodgers from Anfield.
“I saw that there was a bit in the paper the other day saying that Brendan felt there was a campaign against him, and that he was maybe blaming ex-players for that. I don’t think that’s the case at all, personally.” he said.
“At the end of the day, people are just giving their honest opinions on the team that they care about.
“I can understand why Brendan said what he did after the game on Saturday, because it’s emotional.
“I know what my dad was like after games, he would do his press conference and then afterwards he would say ‘Why did I do that? Why am I picking a fight here?’
“But if you can imagine what it’s like; you’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulders, you’re winning 3-2 in a game you simply have to win, and when that final whistle goes you feel like you want to fight the world. It’s a release.
“I can understand why he’s had a bit of a go, but he’s just got to win games. If he thinks ex-players are against him, if he thinks the Pope is against him, it doesn’t matter, he’s just got to win football matches.
“That’s the only way he will keep the criticism at bay.” he finished.
