Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has slammed Liverpool's owners for using the club as a brand rather than a football team.

The Reds announced the sacking of manager Brendan Rodgers not long after their 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday, which saw the team come under criticism.

Henry tore into Liverpool's owners, suggesting that they are using the club's brand and not caring about the football on the pitch, and that the Reds are no longer a "big team" as a result.

"You could sense from the way he was talking that something was happening already. They must have had a discussion before the Everton game, but I want to go back to the owners," he said, according to the Daily Mail.

"It seems to me like they don't really like football. It seems to me like they are kind of using the Liverpool brand.

"Listen, I have massive respect for Liverpool... but it's not a big team any more.

"It is not, and these owners, right now, are using the Liverpool brand, and I don't think it's good for the fans or anyone that loves Liverpool."
