Owners Did The Right Thing At Last


So finally Brendan Rodgers has been sacked, the news comes with great delight to many Liverpool supporters but the owners must get the right man to replace him to make the decision worthwhile.

It’s not nice to see a manager sacked but it is also difficult to show too much sympathy when they will receive a tidy compensation package, in Rodgers’ case around £9 million.

The owners wanted a ‘yes’ man in and it didn’t work despite going close to winning the league a couple of seasons ago with Rodgers having his team playing some of the best football seen at Anfield for many years in the title run-in.

We as supporters enjoyed the ride that year and there is no taking away from Rodgers the impressive season he orchestrated, but he was fortunate with no European football to worry about and usually played just one game per-week making him able to concentrate on the league and able to play an unchanged team most of the time with the likes of Suarez, Gerrard, Sterling, Coutinho and Sturridge providing an amazing attacking threat.

But Rodgers failed to sort out his defence that ultimately led to Liverpool losing the title and the defensive frailties are still there to this day but Rodgers has also lost his attacking threat and losing players like Suarez, Gerrard and Sterling hasn’t helped but his money spent on new recruits has been a major disappointment.

The fact is Rodgers has lost his way and Liverpool needed a change of manager because the job became too big for him and his lack of experience working at a big club was showing.

Rodgers’ poor signings and failure to sort out his defence and struggles to score goals has eventually cost him his job.

The signs were there at the end of last season and the owners should have brought in a new manager then because it is not ideal to bring in a new manager during the season where he can’t sign any new players until January and has to work with the squad he has.

The news of Rodgers sacking being announced after yesterday’s Merseyside derby draw was another surprise, and it would have been better if the club waited until this morning to make the announcement.

However they need to bring in the right man and let him take control instead of bringing in another ‘yes’ man to run the team.

Most supporters would love to see Jurgen Klopp as next manager and I’d also love to see that, fingers crossed the owners get the man the supporters want.
