Liverpool fans will no doubt be happy with Brendan Rodgers’ desire to get Liverpool playing sexy football. However, the Anfield faithful are also likely to be impressed by the Irishman’s no-nonsense approach, which has been perfectly highlighted in a new Fox Sports documentary on the Reds.

In a clip recently released, Rodgers is filmed giving fleet-footed winger Raheem Sterling a right dressing down on the Reds US pre-season tour after the youngster apparently got a bit lippy with his boss.

“You say ‘steady’ to me again when I say something to you, you’ll be on the first plane back,” says a rather irked Rodgers to Sterling.

Good on him I say! I bet the Spice Boys wouldn’t have lasted too long under Rodgers either.

    It’s not that bad, more like a polite ticking off by a nice teacher at school. Imagine Clough or Ferguson etc saying that, the player would think he got off lightly with what Wojjers said. Mind you, Sterling looks like he’s about to cry.

    Anyway, is it just me that has problems posting? The site never remembers the details I enter (it used to ages ago) and every time I post it goes to a blank page. I then refresh the page and and it says it’s detected a duplicate comment.

    Just then when I posted I got that picture of the kitten telling me the server’s busy, and then the blank page.

    Bunch of Yankee sensationalist crap (and I’m a ManRed fan)
    In addition, the comments section and general layout of this site sucks (not having a go at the content by the way, which is sterling!) hope it gets fixed so we can have a fluid footy medium within which to flabbergate..

    not a dressing down and streling was not rude. and as for the spice boys, shut up. fowler, macca and redknapp never had problems with management until that arse frenchman houllier came in with his over bearing style and desire to eliminate the bootroot.

    good for brendan :) sterling seems to have paid some attention since then yeah ….did look like he was going to cry though

  7. Steve Da says:

    Who is the player Rogers said they should all be like?

  8. Cosa says:

    Little bitch looks like he’ll burst into tears because he’s been caught being a twat. Rodgers reduces him to a schoolboy and then starts him versus City; thereby showing he is a man of his word and holds no grudge.

    @Steve – Martin Kelly I think

  10. Rich says:

    @Steve & Phil – It was Jack Robinson I believe
