Liverpool boss quashes Jurgen Klopp rumours and admits he’s best

Aston Villa v Liverpool - Barclays Premier LeagueLiverpool fans are moving over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern eager to hear what BBC Sport have to say about the future of manager Brendan Rodgers.

The Reds boss has come under a huge amount of scrutiny of late but is digging his heels in and is certainly making it clear that he thinks he is the one for the job at Anfield.

Rodgers was asked if he felt he was the right man for the job given links to Jurgen Klopp have been getting stronger in recent weeks, and claimed: ‘Very much so, yes. I don’t think there’s anyone better.

‘That’s the reality of how I see it. Three months ago I was a tactical genius, performing to a good level.

‘We lost a couple of games, some important games, and now you’re not so good. But that is football, that’s what will happen, people will speculate.’

As one of our punters notes, that comment has gone viral with plenty of people pointing out that three  months ago, the Reds were drawing to Bolton, so tactical genius isn’t really all that accurate!

Liverpool fans. Would you rather have someone else at the helm of the club or do you think that Rodgers is the right man to lead you to a title? Let us know your thoughts below.
