Liverpool boss PLEADS with fans to stick with out of form team

Posted by

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has pleaded with fans to stick with his out of form side, reports the Daily Express.

The Reds have made a poor start to the season, already losing twice. The defeats to Manchester United and West Ham have also been joined by stuttering displays in wins over AFC Bournemouth and Stoke City as well as a draw with Arsenal.

In his match programme notes before their match with Norwich City, Rodgers writes: “Finally, a personal message from me, to the supporters. I’m well aware that the last two league matches haven’t produced anywhere near the level you want to see from a team representing you and we are all working night and day to put that right.

“However this team, this group of players, needs your support and needs you to stay with them and help them as they bed-in and find their fluency. It is something that you have done brilliantly for us throughout my time here. It’s what sets you apart.”

This is after a summer in which the Merseyside club spent big on players such as Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino. With such high profile arrivals, much was expected of the Anfield outfit, but they have failed to live up to expectations so far.

Rodgers will now be under pressure to make sure that the team manage positive results against Norwich City and Aston Villa, before a tough run involving Everton, Tottenham, and Southampton in October. With their Champions League qualification hopes on the line, it wouldn’t be hugely surprising if the Northern Irishman’s position at the club came under the microscope if their poor form continued.
