Liverpool had to settle for the 6th spot of the Premier League in the 2014-15 season and this placement was a disappointing one as the English outfit failed to even snatch a Champions League spot and to make matters worse, Liverpool finished this season by sustaining a 6-1 defeat in the last game.
When this season reached it’s end, Brendan Rodgers was a huge favorite of being sacked and replaced but after a rather surprising turn of events, the Northern Irish coach was kept in charge of the squad.
The chairman of Liverpool, Tom Werner has revealed why he and his team opted to keep Brendan Rodgers in the club.
One of the reasons of why Brendan Rodgers was given another chance for him to step it up and Tom Werner stated that sacking the Irish manager after the end of the previous season would have been a rash decision and Werner along with his teammates are still confident that Rodgers who won the League Manager of the Year in 2014 still have what it takes to push Liverpool to the top spots of the Premier League and maybe even win the English title.
Jurgen Klopp announced his departure as the coach of Borussia Dortmund back in April of 2015 and his last match in charge of the German club occurred in May when his team lost against Wolfsburg in the finals of the 2015 DFB Pokal Cup.
Ever since Klopp stepped off from coaching Borussia Dortmund, he was rumored of being offered with the task of turning into the next manager of Liverpool and replacing Brendan Rodgers but despite all of the offers that Liverpool launched at Jurgen Klopp, the German manager stated that he wants some time off of the pitch as he had a very hectic 7 years as the head coach of Borussia Dortmund.
Even with all the support and confidence that the board of directors of Liverpool have placed on Brendan Rodgers, if he is unable to turn things around and start winning matches consistently with impressive performances, this might very well be the last season of Rodgers in Anfield, its now or never for the Irish manager.
