Jamie Carragher has accused Liverpool of "becoming Tottenham" in the wake of Brendan Rodgers' dismissal.
The Anfield legend was working on Sky Sports in his role as a Premier League pundit when news broke that Liverpool had ended Rodgers' tenure with immediate effect.
Speaking about his former club's lack of success over the past decade, Carragher said:
Liverpool have won one Carling Cup in 10 years. Liverpool are becoming Tottenham. They think they are a big club but the real big clubs are not too worried about them. That is the situation for Liverpool. I’m not just blaming Brendan Rodgers, it was the situation when I was there.
