Brendan Rodgers has been far from complimentary about the state of the Anfield pitch in recent weeks.
It was one of the Liverpool manager’s gripes after Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Well, conditions will be much worse when we travel to Ewood Park for the replay in around a month. That’s according to Rovers boss Gary Bowyer.
“Our players were pleasantly delighted to see so much grass on the pitch at Anfield,” Bowyer told talkSPORT.
“At Ewood it is not like that. Brendan was complaining about the pitch here. Wait until he sees Ewood. It makes this look like Wembley.”
Conditions in Lancashire obviously won’t be anywhere near as bad as they are in this picture, but, nevertheless, they are unlikely to suit our slick passing style.
