Man Utd boss Ferguson: Rodgers cocked up Carroll Liverpool departure
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has taken a swipe at Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers over his treatment of Andy Carroll. Ferguson suggests inexperience compounded Liverpool's plight when Brendan Rodgers allowed Carroll to leave before signing a replacement.
"They were after Clint Dempsey, that didn't work out, and they had done the deal for Carroll," Fergie said. "Maybe it was something they did not expect.
"With the manager being young, maybe he expected the deal to go through and then it was not there and he had lost a player, too."
