Former Liverpool defender Phil Thompson believes the “unprecedented” way the club’s fans had turned on manager Roy Hodgson was instrumental in his departure.

Thompson feels Hodgson was not given long enough at Anfield, the 56-year-old believes the fans had a major role to play in the former Fulham manager’s exit.

“Six months is not long enough, not just for Liverpool but for all managers,” Thompson said. “Everybody should have a chance.

“What we’ve seen at Liverpool in the last month has been unprecedented, unparalleled in the way the fans have turned.

“Even in the dark days of Graeme Souness’ reign, there were no universal chants for Graeme to go.

“Liverpool fans felt as though we were different, we don’t do things like that, we stick together and we stick with the club.

“Now the fans had even started taking the mickey out of their own manager, chanting ‘You’re getting sacked in the morning.’ That is incredible.”
