Brendan Rodgers won his first Premier League game since the 18th of August, and his side are sitting just five points off leaders Manchester United.
All that however, is not enough to drive away rumours of an impending sacking. Rodgers is not the man for Liverpool and there is no way I want him to stay on at our club any longer. The team’s performances under him have been really poor and there is no way he deserves to stay on at Anfield any longer.
In fact, it’s hard to even believe that this guy is still here! Far better managers have been sacked for lesser crimes. And when you actually consider that two of the world’s best managers are available to hire, you will be lead to believe that there is no hope left for us.
The ‘Next Manager To Leave’ market is a very popular one for those who like to have a bet. Brendan Rodgers is currently 7/4 second favourite to leave the club (behind Dick Advocaat), even William Hill football odds could tell, and with Liverpool having some important and difficult games coming up he could be next out of the door. I’d even consider having a punt on this with something like a b365 free bet if that was available.
Jurgen Klopp is one of these men. The 48-year-old German is currently on a sabbatical after leaving the Borussia Dortmund job at the end of the last season. Klopp has gone from being a relatively unknown coach to probably the hottest young/middle aged manager on the planet. His resume includes back-to-back Bundesliga titles, one German cup and three German super cups alongside a Champions League runners-up accolade. Klopp has also won the German Football Manager of the Year award two years in a row while also coming in at second place in the FIFA World Coach of the Year list for the year 2013.
If having one option was not enough, Liverpool’s owners actually have one other fantastic football coach to choose if they like. Carlo Ancelotti is that man and I cannot see any club in the world other than Real Madrid who would not like to have him as their coach. Ancelotti has a CV heavier than Ol’ Big Ears and a list of achievements ten times the size of Liverpool’s present winning streak. In fact, I would be able to write an entire article about his accomplishments alone.
While Brendan Rodgers has three cups of tea waiting for him in his office and Jurgen Klopp has three major trophies under his belt, Don Carlo has three UEFA Champions League winners medals that have granted him a sacred place in footballing supremacy.
Anybody in their right mind would sack Rodgers and hand over the job to either of these men, preferably the latter, but then again, do Liverpool’s owners even have a mind anymore. The answer seems to be a no as Bumbling Rodgers continues as the manager of Liverpool Football Club and I cannot wait to see how low he actually manages to take us.
