Since Christmas, Liverpool have been the Premier League’s form side and post the only unbeaten record in the Premier League since the turn of the year, flying from the bottom half of the table to challenging for a top four place.
Before the revival though, the Merseysiders looked destined for a terribly disappointing campaign, having been eliminated from the Champions League and languishing in a poor league position.
Rodgers told The Mirror: “If I was facing the sack, then I was going down fighting.”
He added: “It wasn’t working. We had a huge challenge, probably the biggest I have had as a coach or manager.
“We had no identity and everyone could see it. We just weren’t the team I had built over a couple of years, certainly created the identity with the way we played.
“I knew I had to do something radical because I had seen enough of the players to know we were not going to be able to shape up and work and play as we had done for the previous couple of years with what we had got.
“That’s what I am, an innovative coach, and I needed to find a way to make us play better.”
The Ulsterman definitely did that, and his side now sit just two points off fourth placed Manchester United.
