PLAYERS: Nuri Sahin
Nuri Sahin has criticized Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers following his failure to make an impression at Anfield. The Turkey midfielder joined the Reds on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last summer but he made only 12 appearances before the deal was terminated in January. The 24-year-old claims he was played out of position without explanation by Rodgers and is now glad not to be playing under him. Sahin, now on loan at Borussia Dortmund , told Spanish newspaper AS: "Brendan Rodgers wanted me to play as a 10. But I do not play behind the forwards. "I spoke with him and asked him why I was playing there. It is not my real position. The boss could not answer me... still, I am not sorry about it. "To play in the red jersey and be in Anfield is something marvellous. "Maybe if I had not gone there I would not have been able to return to Borussia Dortmund. For that, I am happy. "But I have left Brendan Rodgers, thanks be to God." Sahin made his name at Dortmund before joining Real in 2011. He said: "I feel well physically and mentally, everything is perfect. After returning to Germany, I feel much better."
