Report: Brendan Rodgers set for new 5-year Liverpool deal

Liverpool’s owners are set to give their full backing to Brendan Rodgers‘ position at the club by offering him a new five-year deal, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Rodgers has been at Anfield for almost a year and a half, meaning he is half way through the three year deal he signed when he switched from Swansea City.

Peter Guy of the Liverpool Echo claims that the club are “desperate” to agree a new deal with the 40-year-old Norther Irishman.

Guy quotes an unnamed source as saying:

“My understanding is that Brendan is close to agreeing a new deal.

“I believe the club may want to make it a longer term five year agreement and are hoping it can be sorted over the next few weeks.”

Jack Wilson of the Daily Star also reports the news, suggesting Liverpool’s owners are worried manager-less clubs will try to snap Rodgers up if he doesn’t commit himself to life on Merseyside soon.

Rodgers has orchestrated vast improvements at the club during his short time on Merseyside and goes into December with Liverpool sitting second in the Premier League.

Rodgers is now looking towards bringing in new personell in the January transfer window to strengthen his squad further.

Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand has been the subject of increased speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool this week, whilst Barcelona youngster Martin Montoya has also been targeted.

    Talks to much.All talk no trophies.

      I don’t know if you’ve noticed… but our team hasn’t exactly been a trophy winning team for quite some time now since the departure of Xabi and then Rafa, with the lone exception being the Carling cup. Brendan has at least brought some consistency. When’s the last time you remember us being in the top four? Our team is actually doing quite well right now and Brendan’s philosophy is taking shape. As we settle more and more, then we can start to win trophies. But I think some fans think that we should have instant success and hastily forget how much harder it was for us to get three points against weaker sides before Brendan came.

          Typical BR hater. You probably hate FSG, Lucas, Allen and Aspas too hey? Shame.

            I rate lucas very highly.I disliked Rick Parry and David moore .I think they took us downwards.John Smith was in charge of liverpool between 1973 and 1990 our most successful era.The jury is still our on Allen .

          Don’t tell users to not get personal and then in the following sentence call them an idiot. Please stick to talking about football. Other uses have been warned too.

    personally i would wait till the end of the season what if it all goes pear shape ,between now and the end of the season ,we would have to pay him massive compansassion ,and if we finish out side of the top six again would he justify another five year contract

      They are judging him on our performances since January not just on the start to this season.

    I’m a big BR fan, but the timing of this seems a bit strange. Why not wait until the end of the season when, amazingly???, the season can be properly judged. Does a young manager taking on one of the biggest jobs in the game really need any extra level of scrutiny and pressure in the middle of a season? Every setback will now be analysed by the media and many fans in the context of this long term deal. What are the chances of BR leaving between now and the end of the summer? He doesn’t look like a man who is a hurry to be elsewhere. No, for me, the Liverpool way would be to sort this is out in the summer.

  • CARR71

    why is it being negative its a fact we could quite easily finish as low as last season ,lets wait till the end of the season before we hand him such a long contract,i few half decent results and we are giving him a five year deal madness

  • paven naidoo

    Hey moron nobody remembers who comes out second.Liverpoolfc is one of the top 5 clubs in the worlds and king of britian.I will not be subjected to support a club whose fans think mediocrity is fine.We fans must have a winning mentality and our team will follow.All talk and not decisive if we not lfc material hit the road jack.Also substitutions a joke.He will learn but a 5 year deal as I said no business acumen. Moron
