IS PELLEGRINO THE PROBLEM?

Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool have had a very bad start to the season.
Thirteen games played only 6 wins and 2 draws to their name with an astounding 20 goals conceded already, our title challenge in all but over in November.
Why have Liverpool let in so many goals this season?
One has to question the role of backs coach Mauricio Pellegrino.
He played for Benitez at Valencia for four seasons, losing two Champion’s League finals before winning the Spanish League title with Valencia under manager, Rafa Benitez in 01-02.
Benitez signed him for Liverpool in 2005 where he made just 12 appearances for the Reds as the years began to take their toll on him.
However, the sacking of Pablo Ayesteran, big mistake, meant that Benitez felt he needed a new backs coach, so he turned to his old deputy, Pellegrino and he has not delivered the goods.
Liverpool are letting in goals for fun this season, twenty in the League already.
The Argentine has not been a success and I think its time we had a change if we want to finish in the top four this season.
Delaying the inevitable will only cost us valuable points in the league.
