Hodgson not happy with Rodgers two day recovery

The relationship between Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers and England’s Roy Hodgson has not been the best after Rodgers critiqued Hodgson after Daniel Sturridge sustained a thigh strain during a training session for England and Sturridge is expected to be out of action for around 4 weeks.

It looks like now is the turn of Roy Hodgson to critique and put into blast the training methods of Brendan Rodgers as the coach of England is not in favor of the 2 day recovery period that Rodgers utilizes with his players of Liverpool.

On October 12, England played their 2016 Euro’s qualifying match against Estonia which concluded with the English team coming out with the victory but the player of Liverpool, Raheem Sterling asked if he could be left out of the squad and miss this match due to him being tired.

Raheem Sterling was featured in the match but only played for a few minutes in the 2nd half as he entered the pitch as a substitute player and now Roy Hodgson has started to put into question if the training mechanism of Brendan Rodgers is the appropriate one.

“Raheem might say it is something that is becoming ingrained in him and that he felt the need to talk about being tired more than he would normally do. But we have never had any problems with that. I don’t think there is a lot of medical evidence to support the ‘two day recovery’. So if you want to, you might want to research that one. Sterling told me: ‘I’m feeling tired, I’d rather sit this one out’’ England’s Roy Hodgson said.

There has recently been a number of players not only in England but in other countries that have been picking up injuries on a more consistent basis but this is due to the high amount of matches that certain players lately have had to perform.
