Brendan Rodgers wants to keep building at Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers signed a new deal with Liverpool in May 2014 and after a tough start to the season at Anfield, Rodgers has been linked with a move to Manchester City.

Liverpool made their worst start to a league season in their history which saw the Reds drop down to the bottom half in the first half of the season. However, Rodgers has managed to turn it around since then and the Reds are now 3 points off third place and are in with a chance to lift the FA Cup as well.

Liverpool are the most in form side in all of Europe and are yet to be beaten in 2015. Following the remarkable turnaround, Rodgers hopes to get more time and continue building at Merseyside.

“Where do you go from Liverpool, one of the biggest clubs in the world?” said the 42-year-old.

“I’ve signed a deal here and I want to be here to see that through. Then, hopefully, I’ve earned enough time to warrant another deal, to keep growing and building here” he said.

“If I’m here after this year, it will be the longest period in any role I’ve been in football. I’ve always been the same. After three years, I’ve always moved a role or job,” he said.

“I always saw Liverpool as a club that was going to be a destination for me, not somewhere that was part of the journey.”

Rodgers, who led Liverpool to the brink of the title last season, added: “I really wanted to be here, follow some incredible managers with a support that is unrivalled, and to have success while knowing I was young enough to create and build something.

Further the former Swansea boss emphasized on the need to win trophies.

“That is why I came here. I know I need to justify that by working well and winning trophies. I hope that is the next step.

“When you come here, that is what you are judged on. It is something I want to do for all the supporters and people here.”

Liverpool are well positioned to end the season with a top four finish and a cup win, however, should the Reds miss out on Champions League qualification, it is tough to see a future for Rodgers at Liverpool.
