Liverpool concluded the season with a 2-1 triumph against Newcastle United and a few days later, the team of Brendan Rodgers played a friendly match against Shamrock Rovers and even though there was nothing at stake Rodgers stated that it still was a nice way to finish the season.
“Our actual focus was on this game [against Shamrock] because we needed to focus on here. We had a job to do and we had a duty to our supporters to perform well and work hard. The reflection comes now that this is finished. But my overriding feeling is one of pride. This season we’ve had some incredible performances and we have recovered the soul of the club again for the supporters. They feel pride and enthusiasm in the club and they have a spring in their step because we are heading back in the direction of where Liverpool Football Club should be, and that’s the best.” Rodgers said.
This season saw Liverpool FC being unable on securing any kind of silverware but the fans and performers of the Premier League club have high expectations for the years to come as they made a genuine charge for the league title and a series of impressive performances for Liverpool has given hope for the supporters of the club.
Manchester United also failed on lifting any trophies in this recently concluded campaign but everything seems to be going downhill for the team at Old Trafford after making a number of costly signings such as Fellaini and Juan Mata. There is a lot of work that needs to be done in the club before they can return to their glory days but it’s a completely different story for Liverpool as Rodgers and his players after such an impressive campaign especially for Luis Suarez and Steven Gerrard as they turned out to be some of the main influential figures inside of the pitch.
