Fulham have made an official complaint to the Premier League about the Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers.

The London club have taken action against Rodgers for revealing in a press conference that Liverpool had enquired about buying Clint Dempsey.

Fulham believe that Rodgers has broken Premier League rules by his public courting of the United States international. The complaint was registered last month and was discussed at the July meeting of the Premier League board, which consists of Richard Scudamore, Sir Dave Richards, Nic Coward and Mike Foster.

"The Premier League has received a complaint from Fulham FC regarding certain comments made by Liverpool FC officials and is currently looking into the matter," read a statement released yesterday.

Fulham took exception to comments made by Rodgers to the media last month when he was pressed about his interest in Dempsey.

"Clint is a player we've enquired about, it is as simple as that," Rodgers said. "He's a very talented player but we don't like to talk about other clubs' players."

Dempsey has been training on his own at Fulham after pulling out of the club's pre-season training camp in Switzerland.
