In the article on 19th Feb The Secret Footballer said “A friend of mine recently told me his team lacked any clear direction or ambition and, as a result, problems came about which had not been addressed. He said things got so bad that a group of players even began to raise the possibility that it could be a deliberate ploy by the manager to get himself sacked.”

Given that he states this was ‘recent’ it would seem this is reference to Roy Hodgson at Liverpool. If so he has a friend who plays for Liverpool. What are your thoughts? Is there another manager that this could be?
