Rodgers now just 4/1 to get the chop next.
Brendan Rodgers’ days as Liverpool manager could well be numbered, with the Express reporting that bookmakers have slashed their odds on the former Swansea City and Reading manager receiving his marching orders to a tiny 4/1 after a dismal run of results from last season’s Premier League runners up.
The Reds conceded a late equaliser to Bulgarian champions Ludogorets Razgrad in their Champions League trip to Sofia this week, leaving them in need of three points against FC Basel in the final group game at Anfield to progress to the knockout stages on their return to the competition.
Even more alarming for Liverpool fans, however, is the club’s form in the Premier League, with a 3-1 reverse against Crystal Palace at the weekend having left them in the bottom half of the table and out of the title race already after Chelsea’s stunning start to the campaign.
Despite the fact that rivals Manchester United, Everton and Arsenal have also stuttered at the start of the season, just qualifying for the Champions League again looks like a tall order for Rodgers and his side, explaining the huge tumble in odds on a sacking from the 50/1 that they were at the start of the season.
