Former Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin says he was played out of position by Brendan Rodgers during his time at Anfield.
The Turkish midfielder joined the club on loan from Real Madrid in the summer of 2012, in a deal that was considered a major coup for the club at the time.
But Sahin only featured a handful of time in the middle of the Reds midfield before heading back to former club Borussia Dortmund in January 2013.
And the classy midfielder has revealed the fact he was played in the wrong position by Rodgers was a key factor in his decision to leave.
He told TRT: “I went to Liverpool because of my love for the Premier League.
“After scoring a few goals the manager started playing me behind the striker which does not suit my game.
“Despite my love for the club and the fans, I had to leave due to the managers insistence on playing me in that role.”
