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.”

    now you see some of the players are started blame Rodgers for their failuar at anfield at their time at liverpool……. Rodgers is not a professional coach so he must think something else to do in his future.

    Brenden Rogers needs to go as he is not suited for a big club like liverpool and he’s lack of experience of managing a top side is showing in every game liverpool plays lately. We know we aren’t utd fans that fly banners wanting a new manager but we also aren’t blind to the fact that the current manager isn’t suited to liverpool football club. Spending over 100 million and saying building for the future is unnacceptable in this modern age of football as we need wins now not in 10yrs time. 20 odd million for players like markovic and lovren aswel as lallana who so far don’t even show glimpses of the 28 million suarez was bought for. That’s the type of player liverpool should be buying for that money. Dalglish found suarez so I’m sure there’s more similiar styled players out there. Ballotelli needs charlie austin partnering him up front not lambert or borini. Stop looking for players like bony cause he’s just another lazy striker. Suarez and torres left liverpool. The 2 best strikers we’ve had in the recent yrs so time for liverpool to wake up and figure out why they lost the best to just buy the worst
