Jordan Ibe sad to see Rodgers sacked


The forward was helped by the Northern Irishman

Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe has thanked the former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for guiding him in the world of football.

Rodgers was sacked by the Reds just over a week ago and has since been replaced by ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, who has signed a three-year contract on Merseyside.

Ibe is currently with the England under 21s as they prepare to face Kazakhstan tonight, however, he has admitted that he was sad to see Rodgers leave the club.

Rodgers, who previously managed Swansea City, handed Ibe his first team debut against Queens Park Rangers at Anfield during 2013; Ibe would assist Philippe Coutinho for the only goal of the game.

‘It’s a shame’

The 19-year old said: “It’s a shame about Brendan because he was an important man in my career, but that’s how football is. There’s no promises in football and I wish him all the best for the future.”

He also added: “I now need to focus and work under the new manager, he’s got good experience and did some great stuff with Borussia Dortmund.”
