Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has rejected talk of disharmony among the squad, with the club enduring a difficult campaign, BBC
Second only narrowly to Manchester City last season, the Reds have struggled consistently this time around, with a series of poor performances and results in league and cup leaving them in 11th place in the Premier League after 15 games, while their return to the Champions League after five years away ended in group stage disappointment and demotion to the Europa League.
Rodgers has come under increasing pressure to turn things around, although a number of players have been subjected to criticism. All of that has resulted in rumours that there is unrest within the dressing room, but such stories have been swiftly dismissed by the Northern Irishman.
“I hear one or two bits and pieces about unrest and it is totally untrue,” he said “Our dressing room is very strong. These are competitive players who nearly won the league last year, so they won’t be happy with losing.
“But the actual spirit in the group is very strong. That is one of the reasons why, when we get that confidence back, then we will go into the second half of the season and be much better.”
