Liverpool boss Rodgers hints at tension with England medical team

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has hinted at tension with England's medical team.

Rodgers is happy Daniel Sturridge is out of England's squad for next week's Euro qualifiers.

While Rodgers insists there is no issue between him and Roy Hodgson when asked whether England's and Liverpool's medical departments were at odds with each other he added: "It is not something to be discussed now.

"I don't think the same thing will happen again. From the conversations with Roy they will obviously look at that.

"I understand his position where he has only a few days to work with the players and he will probably take away that intensity on that second day but you can still work players, we work players here on the second day, but it needs to be tapered to the individual player."
