Brendan Rodgers has been sacked as Liverpool manager after his team drew the Merseyside derby earlier today. After reassurances at the end of last season, results haven’t improved this campaign despite a lot of money being put into the club.
The Reds have found themselves in 10th place this season, and after three seasons, Rodgers has been sacked. They finished second in his second season, but since then have finished seventh and sixth. He has lost a host of star players during his reign, such as Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling, but he hasn’t been able to put the money to good use.
The favourites to succeed Rodgers include ex-Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp, former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and current Ajax coach Frank De Boer.
The reaction to the sacking has certainly been mixed. Other Premier League managers, such as Garry Monk and Arsene Wenger, have expressed their disbelief at the sacking, but many Liverpool fans believe that it was the right decision, considering the options now available.
