After weeks of speculation over Brendan Rodger’s position at Liverpool FC, the board have finally sacked him. This came within hours of a dreary 1-1 draw with Merseyside rivals Everton earlier on today. Rodgers, of whom blatantly knew was on borrowed time, seemed very calm and sophisticated in the post-match interview when talking about the teams performance.

When asked about his future at Liverpool FC, Rodgers stated that he “felt under no pressure” as manager of Liverpool, even though he had only won one game in the last 9.
It doesn’t as a surprise to anyone connected with LFC after Rodgers spent a total of £300+ million over his 3-year spell in charge.
Rodger’s was told in person by club chairman Ian Ayre and on the phone by director Micheal Gordon, within an hour of the match ending at Goodison Park.

Win Percentage: 51%
It’s likely that either Jurgen Klopp or Carlo Ancelotti will replace Rodger’s as Liverpool manager, but there has been no confirmation of any kind.
