Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with some wry amusement after seeing an old quote from their manager Brendan Rodgers rear its head on social media again this weekend.
Much has been made of the comments Rodgers made about Southampton selling their players (mainly to them) and it seems that even Tottenham Hotspur did not escape his tirades.
The North London side had to sell Gareth Bale and of course did not reinvest that money very well.
Yet after seeing Rodgers’ comments – re-tweeted from the start of the season yesterday following the Reds’ Crystal Palace loss – we think that he should take a lesson from the old phrase ‘don’t count your chickens before they hatch’ after seeing his Luis Suarez-generated funds poured down the same drain!
Liverpool fans. You may want to cover your eyes before scrolling down! Spurs fans; enjoy yourselves!
