Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wants this season’s FA Cup to be the first of many trophies…
Brendan Rodgers has already laid out plans for the next quarter of a century, after declaring that he wants to remain with Liverpool for his entire managerial career.
The 42-year-old hopes to win his first trophy as boss of the Anfield club with this year’s FA Cup, with the Reds currently just three games away from lifting the famous trophy at Wembley.
Rodgers, who was quoted by the Daily Mirror ahead of his side’s quarter-final against Blackburn Rovers, is quick to admit that he must deliver silverware if he wants to achieve his ambitious targets, but believes he has all of the tools at his disposal to do just that.
He said: “Winning trophies is the currency. When you come to here, that is what you will be judged on.
“I remember earlier on in the season, playing Ludogorets away, and I walked off and saw a banner with ‘Rodgers Out’. So I never get too carried away. I always have that in the back of my mind.
“With all due respect, I/m building something that was different to maybe what it was when Liverpool were the very top team and dominating. But it is something I want to do inherently, for all the supporters and people here.
“Me personally, when I retire from football, hopefully in the next 25 years, we will have won many trophies. Ultimately it won’t define me, but I know my time here will be defined like that.”
A small minority of Liverpool fans appeared to turn of Rodgers earlier this season, producing a laughable ‘Rodgers Out’ banner after a difficult run of results. But thankfully, any doubters have been quickly silenced in recent months.
Liverpool are the only unbeaten Premier League team left in 2015, and have already closed to within two points of the top four places, as we seek a second successive season of Champions League football.
Rodgers has been at the heart of our revival, with his change to a 3-4-3 formation revolutionising the performances of our squad, particularly his host of summer signings, who have all impressed in recent games.
