With the footballing world having not pulled any punches following Brendan Rodgers’ sacking as Liverpool boss on Sunday evening, Reds supporters are firmly looking forward to Jurgen Klopp arriving to sort everything out.
Having experienced a damning assessment from Liverpool supporters and some pundits alike, it could’ve all been so different for Rodgers who came oh so close to lifting a first Premier League title in the modern era for the Reds back in the 2013/14 campaign when Manchester City stole in to win it right at the death.
Ultimately, Rodgers paid the price for his Liverpool side being too inconsistent but also particularly his failings in the transfer market with the likes of Mario Balotelli, Lazar Markovic and Dejan Lovren just not being up to scratch to sustain a top four battle, let alone a title chasing one.
Just four points off second and third placed Arsenal and Manchester United right now, Klopp won’t be inheriting a side in total disaster such as Newcastle United but quite simply, 10th place right now is not good enough for a club the size and stature of Liverpool.
For Rodgers however, it remains to be seen where he’ll source his next job but make no mistake; having cut his teeth in management back in 2008 with Watford after being a coach at Chelsea, he’s steadily built his reputation and does deserve some credit as being a good man manager with attacking intentions.
Undoubtedly going to be one of the leading candidates whenever the next Premier League manager loses his job over the next couple of months, we’ve devised a list of five top flight clubs who Rodgers could be managing next following his Reds sacking.
