Brendan Rodgers under pressure as Liverpool drop to 55th in UEFA rankings

Posted by

Liverpool have dropped down to 55th in the UEFA rankings, on the eve of their Europa League campaign, reports the Metro.

This is a massive fall since Fenway Sports Group took over the club in 2010. Back then, the Reds were in fifth place, and a regular in the Champions League. Teams such as Metalist Kharkiv, AZ Alkmaar, and Trabzonspor are all ahead of the Merseyside club.

Perhaps even worse for the Anfield outfit is the fact that their domestic rivals are ahead of them. Even Tottenham are in 24th place, putting Liverpool’s position in to an even worse light. They will need to improve it if they want to avoid a tough draw should the team qualify for the Champions League.

With manager Brendan Rodgers being in charge for the majority of the time in which the club’s ranking has fallen, this will increase the pressure on him. The Northern Irishman has come under the spotlight after losing to Manchester United and West Ham in recent weeks, despite spending big in the summer.
