Former Liverpool star tips Brendan Rodgers to stick around for the long haul
After losing their FA Cup semi final with Aston Villa on Sunday and looking off the pace in the race for Champions League qualification, current boss Brendan Rodgers is under pressure. This news coupled with Jurgen Klopp announcing that he is going to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer has let the Red hierarchy know that there are options out there should they got for a change.
The 48-year-old has been at St. Etienne since 2009, and he has steadily improved the side throughout. This season they are challenging AS Monaco and Olympique Marseille for the final Champions League qualification spot in Ligue 1. However, despite this their ex-defender is still thinking about leaving the French club.
He said: “If I had to choose my destination, I would go to Liverpool. It’s my dream. This is not a desire on my part to go elsewhere but I do always ask myself the question and I have a constant question in my head of whether this year will be one too many [at Saint Etienne].
“Maybe it is a mistake on my part to have the question at the back of my mind but that’s just how it is. I have the right, like the players, to ask whether or not this is the right moment to go elsewhere. Take over Marseille? Why not? Lyon? Everything is possible in football.”
