Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers believes it isn’t over until it is over. The future of the Irish coach at Anfield has been a subject of intense speculations as a result of poor results.

Liverpool has not won a game in the premier league since their second game of the 2015/2016 season. The poor form has to rumours of Carlo Ancelotti being touted as the Rodgers’ successor, a rumour which the club has seen diffused.

Speaking about his club’s form, Rodgers insisted that he has embraced the challenge he faces at the club. He also noted that the Reds needed just one win to get back to good form.

“The pressure is huge but I embrace that challenge,

“I’m never complacent enough to think my job has never been (in danger).

“I respect that we need to get results. One win and we’re back around top four.

“Experiences make you better as a manager. To manage the focus and scrutiny here has been fantastic. I’ve loved every minute of it,” he stated.

The 42-year-old made it clear that it was normal for a manager to face immense pressure when results are not going his team’s way.

“In terms of names linked, when you’re manager of a club this size, there is always going to be speculation, especially when not winning.

“I have regular contact with the owners and that relationship is strong. No matter how much longer I’m here, I’ll have huge respect for them,” he explained.
