Update On Brendan Rodgers’ Future At Liverpool

By on May 25, 2015

According to Sky Sports News sources, Liverpool are set to stick by under-fire manager Brendan Rodgers despite their embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Stoke City on Sunday.

The Reds were pushing for a top three finish just a few weeks ago but a poor run-in saw them fall out of the top four reckoning and they ended the season down in sixth position after a humiliating 6-1 defeat at Stoke yesterday afternoon.

The loss was the final straw for many Liverpool fans with social media sites filled with supporters calling for the Northern Irishman to be sacked by the clubs owners when they meet for an end of season review this week.

Rodgers insisted after yesterday’s defeat he’s still the best man for the job but admitted there was little he could do if the owners decided to sack him. He told reporters:

“I’ve always said that if the owners want me to go, then I go. It’s as simple as that.

“But I still feel I’ve got a lot to offer the club. A lot has happened this year which has made the job difficult, but I totally understand that.

“We finish in sixth position, which is where we deserve to finish. It’s a big, big summer ahead. We lose Steven after today and you’ve seen again his inspiration in the team to get a goal. We’ve got a hell of a lot of work to do.

“I think it’s clear, you look at our goals over the course of the season and [the lack of goals] has been the major contributing factor.

“I’ve had to look at different ideas and different ways to make the team create and score more.

“We’ve taken our beating today. Stoke were better than us, especially in that first half. Second half we were much better and much more authoritative in the game, but still we can’t take much away from losing 6-1.”

Bookmakers have slashed the odds on Rodgers been given the boot with former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp the 5/4 favourite with some betting companies to take over at Anfield.

However, it seems the Liverpool owners are ready to give Rodgers another chance as Sky Sports News claim that sources close to the club have told them that FSG have no intention of sacking their manager despite a disappointing campaign.

We’ll have to wait and see whether that turns out to be the case, as things can change very quickly in football. The owners may not currently have any plans to change manager but their out-look could change depending on how talks go at the end of season review.

So we’ll have to await further updates over the coming days but it seems as of now, Rodgers will be the man to take Liverpool forward into next season.

    Unbelievable! seems either

    he knows things they don’t wanna him air out and he is blackmailing them. He was disgustingly defiant in a very disguised way yesterday ; ‘…if they want me to go, I go …’

    or

    they have found a perfect yes man to use lfc as a lucratve business

    We the fans do not get any salary but we fans take all the pain. We fans have been waiting for twenty five years and seems we”ll have to walk on the temporal axis for more time if Rodgers is still in.

      Totally understand Critam, Liverpool Football Club is no place for a manager to be ‘evolving’ or learning his trade. The fans deserve much better than that. It’s totally unacceptable for a club of Liverpools stature and standing to be suffering the dismal football and declining standards we’ve had to endure. Shocking.

    If Brendan stays it shows just how little Fenway know about football, or ‘soccer’ as they call it. Disgraceful.

    Football mad city,3rd.class manager, not wealthy enough owners, with little or NO KNOWLEDGE of what a true Liverpool football fan needs.
    Please, please, where is there a WEALTHY ARAB.
    Even Mike Ashley would be a better owner than THE YANKIES.
    GET RID OF RODGERS ASAP.

    How has LFC evolved iver the last 25 years. THEY HAVNT. They are stuck in the past with the ex players and legends of the club slating every player and manager who doesnt do well and the owners thinking they will win things with players who “might” be good in a few years. In fact i cant be bothered with this. FSG OUT. RODGERS OUT. IAN AYRE and his stupid transfer commitee OUT OUT OUT.
    Supported LFC for 44 years and never been so disheartened watching the team struggle and listening to the spiel coming out of rodgers mouth. LFC is not a club you learn your trade. It is a club where you define your place in the pantheon of football history and the sooner this lot go the better

    As an avid fan of LFC for many years, I feel alot of pain to see the club’s performance on the pitch so poor this season. Poor beginning of the season, terrible end of it. Last season it was the same.Relatively poor beginning and a hiccup at the end which cost us the title! BR take responsibility and leave. Dont wait for the sack.

    BR, you don’t have lots to offer anymore and you called the fans short memories. Show me what have you offers accept for 2nd place in 2013/2014. Is there any trophies to show to the fans. I hope FSG will sack you before its to late.

    Transfer bid adds to what makes a manager a good one, number of players bin sign show the level a manager is in and what are really his expectation 4 d club. We cn vividly see that 80percent of players he signed has bin if not flops’ average, pls is this the team building is talking abt? Well, I dnt blame him’ I blame d owners 4 looking down on us and I wouldn’t pour d whole blame on d owners’ I also blame we fans 4 havn’t shown actions towards this set-back. If we less attended a home match’ am sure we will receive a positive news b4 d upper week. Thanks@ uc_torres
