Brendan Rodgers broke Liverpool’s ‘unacceptable’ word list last season
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers stepped outside the club’s new guidelines on acceptable language last season.
The Reds have produced a document telling players and staff words that they should not use to avoid discriminating against people on grounds of race/religion, sexual orientation, gender and disability.
The club is keen to improve its image this season after the racism rows that have blighted recent campaigns. And that’s meant providing staff with a list of banned words. You can see the list below:
But it seems that even manager Brendan Rodgers will have to watch his tongue this season.
He breached the guidelines last year when he told the media his players needed to “man-up”.
Last September, he said: “I’ve spoken to the players and told them if you get little niggles or little injuries you’ve got to man up.”
That phrase is now banned on the basis that is discriminates against gender.
