Rodgers: Reds have been wronged

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has spoken to referees' chief Mike Riley about the way officials have treated his team this season.

Rodgers is unhappy that key decisions have gone against Liverpool and is at a loss to understand why. The Reds boss, having seen striker Luis Suarez denied what he felt were two penalties in their last two matches, was prepared to bide his time even after Jonjo Shelvey's red card and Antonio Valencia's penalty award against Manchester United on Sunday.

But having been frustrated again by refereeing calls in Wednesday night's Capital One Cup win at West Brom, he felt he needed to put his point across to the head of Professional Game Match Officials Ltd, and he said: "I rang Mike Riley this morning. I think he was expecting me to call him a bit earlier. It has just become quite obvious, especially after last night's game."
