Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit out against Liverpool owners the Fenway Sports Group after they decided to part company with Brendan Rodgers last week.
The 42-year-old former Swansea boss was let go following the Reds 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park following three seasons in which the Northern Irishman failed to bring a trophy to Anfield.
Gunners boss Wenger, who has been in charge at Arsenal for 19-years says he does not understand the club owners actions after firing Rodgers.
‘Let’s not forget Liverpool has not won the championship since . They won 18 championships and since [’90] they have not won the championship,’ Wenger told beIN Sports.
‘They came the closest to winning it two years ago and now I don’t know why really, the rational reasons why they have made that decision so quickly. It’s difficult for me to understand.
‘I’m surprised because first of all for me it’s very sad.’
‘I think when you lose your job in life, it’s difficult and on top of that after eight games it’s very, very difficult because if you start well and you have a bad moment during the season, people forgive you.
‘But if you start wrong straight away you are questioned and that’s what happened to Brendan Rodgers.
‘I don’t know why really, the rational reasons why they have made that decision so quickly. It’s difficult for me to understand.’
