England manager Roy Hodgson has continued his developing feud with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, by telling the press that the Anfield gaffer does not know what he’s doing, as reported by the Daily Star.
Rodgers and Hodgson have been having a war of words recently over the use of Raheem Sterling, who has come to the fore for both club and national team in recent months.
The Northern Irish manager has expressed his concern about Sterling suffering from burnout in the future, if he is overplayed.
To that end, Rodgers has dropped Sterling on occasion, in order to ensure that the 19 year old will sustain his current exceptional form.
Rodgers was also unhappy at Daniel Sturridge’s injury, which he picked up in the last international break.
The Anfield boss is a proponent of a two day recovery period after matches, and believed Hodgson’s over training was at fault for Sturridge’s injury.
Hodgson said: “I don’t think there is a lot of medical evidence to support the ‘two day recovery’.
“If you want to, you might want to research that one. Certainly, the Germans, who everyone admires so much, they don’t do it. That is for certain.
“Raheem might say it (the two-day recovery period) 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.”
