Hodgson Blames Twitter & Internet For Liverpool Failure
West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson blames the internet for his torrid time as Liverpool manager.
The experience manager concedes fans used social media outlets to vent their angry whilst he was at the helm in Liverpool. Hodgson was never the “fans choice” when he arrived at Anfield and a poor start to his campaign done little to convince the fans he was the man to revitalise the good times in Liverpool.
He told the London Evening Standard:
“I am not convinced the internet is a true reflection of what people in general think of anything, least of all in football clubs. ‘Interneters’ or ‘twitterters’, whatever you call them, want to make themselves a bit special by getting their voices heard.
“In the past, newspapers relied on their sources within the club. Now what you read in the papers just comes from people shifting through the internet. But there is a large body of people out there who care about their club. They are much more fair-minded but their opinions don’t get canvassed because they do not broadcast them.”
