Brendan Rodgers: “I don’t seek reassurances” over Liverpool future

Despite the heightened pressure on him as Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers says he hasn’t spoken to the club’s owners about his future.

Rodgers has not spoken to Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group about his future as Liverpool manager, saying “I don’t seek reassurances.”

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Merseyside derby clash away at Everton‘s Goodison Park, Rodgers was faced with questions over his job prospects, but remained bullish.

“It’s not something that I look for and it’s not something I’m worried about,” he said.

“I’ll always work with the very best of the players and the situation that I’m in. I don’t seek reassurances.

“I love the club, I enjoy being here and the challenge of improving and developing

“We know it’s a long season – it’s still very early – and we’re making progress as we go along, and we know we have some outstanding players to come back into there ranks.

“Once we have them, we’ll be in a position to challenge.”

Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with FC Sion on Thursday night brought a familiar situation at full-time, with Anfield ringing out to a chorus of boos.

Asked about whether this affects him or his players, Rodgers took a typical stance.

“I respect and understand that,” he continued.

“The supporters watched the game and will be disappointed we didn’t take the chances: they want us to win as much as we want to win.

“That’s something that you have to take on the chin as a coach and as players.

“I think when you lose games at a club like this here, the investigation that goes into it is very deep, and obviously the analysis on it is huge.

“But it’s something that you have to deal with.”
