Manager History Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers

Former Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers was appointed Liverpool manager on 1st June 2012, two weeks after the controversial sacking of Kenny Dalglish.

The fans, despite being annoyed by the treatment of Dalglish, soon warmed to the Northern Irishman’s tiki-taka style of play.

With the club’s PR department working in overdrive to get fans back on their side, a fly-on-the-wall documentary series entitled ‘Being Liverpool’ showed Rodgers’ first season in charge of the Reds.

Rodgers talked a good game, but struggled to get the results that the board and fans demanded and his time ran out on 4th October 2015. His successor had apparently already been lined up… Jurgen Klopp.


White blow for Reds

Liverpool's hopes of signing Ben White in the summer have suffered a blow after Brighton & Hove Albion's decision to try to hold onto the defender.

Keita linked with Leicester

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is a keen admirer of Keita and could be tempted to pay the reported £30m asking price in the summer.

Klopp makes a ‘Real’ mistake

The boss got it wrong. He does occasionally, but this time, it may cost Liverpool not only a place in this season’s Champions League semi-final but, by extension, a place in next season’s competition too.
