Brendan Rodgers Calls for New Pitch at Celtic Park
Celtic managed yet another victory in the league after a 2-0 success over Motherwell.
The victory preserves the 24 point advantage in the Scottish Premier League. It has been an extraordinary season from the table leaders, as they have been able to go from strength to strength under the regime of Brendan Rodgers. After having broken numerous records over the last six months, it seems that Celtic still retained the same kind of desire shown at the start of the season. Rodgerscould be extremely happy at the moment, but the former Liverpool manager showed signs of unhappiness after the recent win over Motherwell.
The game took place at Celtic Park andRodgers was not happy with the state of the pitch. He has called on the club to come in with a brand-new surface for the next season. It is not surprising thatRodgers has complained about the state of the pitch. The Northern Ireland manager insists on playing football on the ground just like Pep Guardiola.
If the playing surface is not conducive to the play, it would see his team struggle to dominate opposition, especially at home. Celtic managed to get the victory over Motherwell after two second-half goals. Mousa Dembele scored from the spot before James Forrest grabbed the second just a few minutes before the half time break.
"I think it is an old pitch here, so we need to modernise the field.You are looking for fast football and speed in your game, the level we are looking to play.We actually go away to some grounds and play better because the opposition pitch is better and this here slows us down.It is a concern for me when you are trying to entertain supporters and play a level of game, the pitch is vital.Our players have to deal with a real difficult pitch,” said Rodgers.
