Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol has been unimpressed with his old club this season…
Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol has launched a scathing attack on the club he played over 300 league games for, claiming that their season has been an ‘absolute disaster’.
Speaking after the Reds’ tough start to the campaign continued with a 1-0 defeat against Newcastle United on Saturday, Nicol explained his belief that something has gone wrong at the club.
As TalkSport explains, the Reds have already lost four times this season, compared to last year’s six losses when they finished second in the Premier League, narrowly missing out on winning the title.
And the former Anfield star believes manager Brendan Rodgers’ tactics and the club’s new signings have to come into question following their below-par beginning to the campaign.
“To say they’ve been a disappointment is an understatement,” Nicol told Extra Time. “[This season] has been an absolute disaster. There is only one man missing from the squad they had last year and that’s Luis Suarez, everybody else is still there.
“Something has gone wrong somewhere down the line. All this teamwork and all this chemistry they had last year has disappeared.
“The biggest question isn’t about Brendan’s tactics, which are questionable. The biggest question is actually, who is making the decisions on the signings?
“When you finish second in the Premier League and you have the amount of money Liverpool had to spend and you don’t spend it wisely that is the question I would be asking. Who signed these guys?”
