After over three years in charge at Anfield, Liverpool has parted ways with Northern Irishman, Brendan Rodgers. The club’s owner, Fenway Sports Group sacked the 42-year-old about an hour after the 1-1 draw with Merseyside rivals, Everton.
A statement on the Liverpool website read:
“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Brendan Rodgers for the significant contribution he has made to the club and express our gratitude for his hard work and commitment.
“All of us have experienced some wonderful moments with Brendan as manager and we are confident he will enjoy a long career in the game.
“Although this has been a difficult decision, we believe it provides us with the best opportunity for success on the pitch. Ambition and winning are at the heart of what we want to bring to Liverpool and we believe this change gives us the best opportunity to deliver it.
“The search for a new manager is underway and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.”
Former Dortmund manager, Jurgen Klopp and former Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti are tipped to replace Rodgers.
