Steven Gerrard baffled by sacking of Liverpool coaches
Steven Gerrard believes that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers must explain why his assistant Colin Pascoe and first-team coach Mike Marsh have been sacked.
Rodgers survived an end-of-season review with the Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group, but Pascoe and Marsh paid the price for the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League.
Gerrard, who was speaking at yesterday's launch of BT Sport Europe, insisted that he was in the dark over what was going on at Anfield but he admitted that he would be intrigued to hear the justification for Pascoe and Marsh going.
"I was very surprised," Gerrard, 35, said. "I didn't expect there to be any changes in the staff positions. I think Brendan and the bosses have made those decisions and I'm looking in with a keen interest to see who he puts alongside him and how he tries to improve or strengthen his staff moving forward.
"A lot of names have been mentioned, but I can't give you any insight or names because I'm now on the outside and don't have that relationship with Brendan any more, where I might have got a bit of a nudge on it in the past.
"I am very interested to see who he puts in alongside him and also to hear Brendan speak in a press conference to see why he has decided to make those decisions." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
