Our view: Trevor Sinclair comments highlight agenda against Liverpool

The last week as a Liverpool fan has been anything but boring. The Reds went nine points clear of Premier League champions Manchester City when they defeated the Blues 3-1 at Anfield, our win has been debated due to a VAR controversy and one of our defenders has been swiped at by his international teammate. Every man and his dog has had something to say about the incidents. Comments made by Trevor Sinclair have highlighted the public’s agenda against Liverpool.

Speaking to talkSPORT after the game, the former Manchester City winger said:

“There is a prejudice against Raheem from the Liverpool fans, that he’s a greedy so-and-so. He moved to Manchester City because he wanted to win trophies and he’s won six major trophies since signing for them. How can Liverpool fans be calling him out? Why is there hatred towards him? I don’t know how this is not getting dealt with because I don’t feel one player should have that extreme abuse against him.”

What RTK has to say

The comments that Trevor Sinclair has made about Kopites’ loathing of Raheem Sterling are just pathetic. His remarks only serve to reveal his bias towards Manchester City and the wider public agenda against Liverpool.

Why the hatred towards Sterling? Maybe it is because his agent said that he wouldn’t sign for a million pounds a week? Maybe it is because he left the club in disgrace in order to force a move to our main competitive rivals?

Where were these people up in arms whenever Spurs fans screamed “Judas” at Sol Campbell? To this day, Tottenham fans still sing about their passionate hatred for the defender.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

Where were these people when Robin van Persie was being booed by the Arsenal faithful? Gooner and comedian Romesh Ranganathan called Robin van Persie a “pr**k” to the striker’s face on Sky’s A League of Their Own.

When it is other clubs’ fans it is harmless banter, it’s part of the game. When it’s us it’s “abuse”.

Despising a player for leaving for one of your closest rivals is not exclusive to Liverpool. Yet for some reason, we are being singled out for it and it is further evidence of the blatant agenda that a lot of the public have against the Reds.
