If you live in the United States and you watched Liverpool against Manchester City on FOX Soccer yesterday, you should have seen a sneak preview of FOX’s upcoming behind-the-scenes documentary entitled “Being Liverpool.”
But if you missed it, or you want to see it again like me, watch the above video clip. In it, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers gives starlet Raheem Sterling a tongue lashing in front of his teammates and TV cameras.
It’s a rare glimpse into what it’s like being in the center of a Liverpool training session, and what is said among members of a football club. While not shocking, it’s a brief but optimistic clip that hopefully gives us a taste of what the TV documentary will be like instead of the sugar-coated one I’m concerned it may be.
Sterling, meanwhile, gave a stellar performance at Anfield on Sunday. The left winger has bags of potential, and will hopefully earn a starting spot on the Liverpool team. I’d like to see him beat the last man in a future match. Just like “Being Liverpool,” Sterling has a ton of potential.
“Being Liverpool” will debut on the free-to-air FOX Network in the United States on September 16.
