Brendan Rodgers has recently agreed that he might be considered for the sack but he believes that Liverpool has reached what he qualifies as a “turning point” after their draw during the midweek game against Ludogorets. He stated that the 2-2 draw in Sofia can be called an excellent performance and that the team would be catching up on their strength to be able to face Stoke City on this Saturday’s Premier League match.
Rodgers stated that the team is hoping that their actual season began on their match against Ludogorets and that they would continue with the same pace on their following matches. He evaluated the irony of the situation as last year he was considered as one of the best managers of the year and that this year he is a possible contender for the sack.
Commenting on the performance against Ludogoret, Rodgers praised the competitiveness of his side in what he qualified as a “tough game”. The team had not been in a great form for the past 18 months or so and he prefers to focus on the present rather than dwell on the past.
Bookmakers have listed Rodgers along with Harry Redknapp and Paul Lambert as managers that would be most likely to be sacked. He has accepted this fact as part of a football career which tends to be quite short. His plan is to focus on the job he has now and to improve what he can control such as the function of the team and the role of each player.
