Former Player Sahin Criticizes Liverpool Coach

MOST COMMENTED

Nuri Sahin has criticized Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers for his failure to make an impression during his loan move to Anfield during the first half of the season. The Turkey international joined the Reds on a season-long loan after failing to impress at Real Madrid last season, but he only made 12 appearances before the deal was terminated in January.

The 24-year-old says he was played out of position by Rodgers and is glad that he returned on loan to Borussia Dortmund, the club he used to play for before he moved to Real Madrid. "Brendan Rodgers wanted me to play as a [No. ] 10, but I do not play behind the forwards,” Sahin told Spanish paper AS. "I spoke with him and asked him why I was playing there. It is not my real position. The boss could not answer me... still, I am not sorry about it.”

He added: "To play in the red jersey and be in Anfield is something marvellous. Maybe if I had not gone there I would not have been able to return to Borussia Dortmund. For that, I am happy. But I have left Brendan Rodgers, thanks be to God."

Sahin led Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga title in 2010-2011 and was named the league’s player of the season.
