Liverpool are gearing up for a huge Europa League tie against Besitkas but their fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are more worried about Demba Ba and luckily the Daily Express has some news on that front.
The publication seems to think that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers does not think that facing the player who destroyed their title dreams last term will be an issue – although as one of our punters notes, we think that saying those words is one thing, actually believing them is another.
Rodgers made it clear that while he rates Ba as a forward, there will be no bad memories when the two face off again this Thursday, noting: ‘It won’t stimulate any bad memories for me. We see him as a threat and will pay him respect but nothing more than that.’
Our landlord thinks that it is a mighty good job Steven Gerrard will miss the game through injury – as facing Ba and losing once again may have been the final straw for him during his final season at the club.
Liverpool fans. Will you be able to keep Ba from scoring this time or will be once again be a massive problem? Let us know your thoughts below.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
