A Spanish Penalty: What the hell did Brendan Rodgers mean after Liverpool’s win at Stoke?!
After Liverpool’s win at Stoke, Brendan Rodgers created a new football phrase: “A Spanish Penalty.”
The Liverpool manager claimed Stoke would be unhappy with the penalty awarded just after half-time, converted by Steven Gerrard for 3-2 to the Merseyside giants.
Rodgers mentioned “A Spanish Penalty” to both the Sky Sports cameras and in his post-match press conference which can be seen above.
So far there has been no criticism of the phrase from Spain – who should be annoyed at being compared to a soft spot kick for a bit of a dive from Raheem Sterling.
“Spanish Penalty” has been added to the Urban Dictionary since Liverpool’s win at Stoke…
