Harry Redknapp has launched a scathing attack on the "worst Liverpool team" he has seen in years.

The Reds were embarrassed at home by West Ham last weekend, and the former QPR boss believes Brendan Rodgers' side are "bang average" and will struggle to finish in the top five.

Redknapp claims their is a lack of character in the dressing and the Anfield club are lucky to have any points this season, let alone seven.

As per the Telegraph, he said: “I don’t fancy Liverpool at all, I think it’s the worst Liverpool team I have seen in years. They look bang average. They are lucky to have any points. Bournemouth should have beaten them, they got a wonder goal at Stoke.

"OK, they played all right first-half at Arsenal. I think they will do well to finish in the top five. I am not with Liverpool at all this year. Having said that they will probably win the league.

“They lost Steven Gerrard, their leader. What a player. They lost Jamie Carragher the year before. They’ve lost their characters. They look a badly balanced team to me. Sorry, I can’t have Liverpool.

“I love Liverpool Football Club, and if you said to me which team would I have loved to manage in this country it would be Liverpool - but I can’t see it this year.”


In other news, AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani believes Mario Balotelli has changed radically since his Liverpool exit.

Apparently Balotelli is the first to turn up for training and the last to leave and is always at the training complex half an hour before the scheduled half eight breakfast.

Galliani believes the Italian forward has realised it is his last chance to impress, but having been at the San Siro club for only six days we will withhold our judgement on whether Balotelli is really a changed man.

As per the Guardian, the chief executive said: "“He has an extraordinary attitude, he’s changed radically, he’s the first to arrive at [the training centre] and the last to leave.

“Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic often wants the players to have breakfast at 8.30am and he’s always there before eight.

“He’s probably realised that this is his last chance and I’m sure he won’t waste it. His technical ability has never been in question. If he continues with the approach he’s had in this first week then he’ll be fine.”
