Brendan Rodgers ‘incredibly disappointed’ at Anfield exit


Jurgen Klopp looks set to replace Rodgers as Liverpool manager

Brendan Rodgers has released a statement expressing his disappointment following his dismissal as Liverpool boss.

Rodgers and Liverpool parted company following the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Merseyside rivals Everton and are already making progress on appointing his successor.

Jurgen Klopp is the favourite and according to BBC Sport, the club has already made an approach for the German.

Carlo Ancelotti is also a potential candidate and is currently unemployed following his sacking from Real Madrid last season.

Rodger’s statement

Liverpool made the decision to end Rodger’s three-year tenure at the club by phone and this is his reaction.

“I am of course incredibly disappointed to be leaving Liverpool Football Club.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to manage one of the game’s great clubs for the last three years.

“I have worked every day to represent the club to the best of my ability, to develop both individual players and a team that the club’s magnificent fans can be proud of.“Liverpool has a magnificent football heritage and I have nothing but respect and admiration for the history, tradition and values that make the city and the club so exceptional.”

Brendan Rodgers statement

Despite guiding Liverpool to second in the league, and the closest anyone has come to finally delivering that elusive Premier League title, the club has decided Rodgers can go no further.
Klopp is one of the most popular managers in Europe at the moment and is as low as 1/10 to be the next manager.
