Under fire Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that he will leave the club if he is asked to by the board
Liverpool’s terrible campaign ended on an embarrassing note as they succumbed to a 6-1 defeat at the hands of Stoke City in the final league game of the Premier League season.
Manager Brendan Rodgers had found himself under a lot of pressure prior to the final game and the humiliating defeat against Stoke only served to further ramp up speculation about his long term future at Anfield.
With former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp being available, a majority of the Liverpool fans want Rodgers to be replaced by the German tactician and it remains to be seen what the next course of action the Reds’ hierarchy will take.
It is clear that Rodgers is under fire at the moment and now the Northern Irishman himself has gone on to admit that there are doubts about his future at Merseyside.
The 42-year-old said that the current campaign has proven to be a very difficult one for Liverpool and conceded that if the club want him to leave during the summer, he will oblige.
Speaking to reporters following the defeat against Stoke City, Rodgers said, “I’ve always said if the owners want me to go, I go. It’s as simple as that. I still feel I’ve got a lot to offer here.
“A lot has happened this year that has made the job difficult and we’ve kept fighting right to the very end but I totally understand that [the questions].
“Last season, when everything is working well and you have the support of everyone … but performances like today don’t help you and I’m fully aware of that.”
