Reds manager not worried by critics.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists he is still the best man for the job at Anfield despite a highly disappointing start to the season, the Daily Telegraph reports.
The Reds boss has come under fire recently for the team’s poor Premier League performances and early exit from the Champions League, only managing a 1-1 draw at home to FC Basel this week to drop out of the competition at the group stage.
Having challenged for the Premier League title last season, this is a drastic dip in form from Liverpool and one that has been met with much concern, though Rodgers maintains that he needs time to rebuild the team after many changes in personnel this summer.
The club lost Luis Suarez after his £75m move to Barcelona, and some of the new signings that have come in to help replace the Uruguayan have not yet found their feet in English football.
“The message for me is clear, I don’t think there would be anyone better to do the job here,” he said.
“Seven months ago we nearly won the title unexpectedly, I had time to work with players and took them beyond where the club has been. This has been a difficult start with new players and less coaching time with young players, virtually starting again.
“I don’t think there is anybody equipped better to deal with that and deal with that having been here for the last 2½ years and experienced what this club is about.”
