It is good to see Brendan Rodgers back in management again after taking a break from football since his departure from Liverpool. The former Reds boss was named as Celtic’s new manager yesterday and I’m sure most Liverpool supporters wish him all the best in his new job.
Rodgers did a good at Liverpool and almost took us to our first league title in many years, but unfortunately he seemed to lose his way prompting the arrival of Jurgen Klopp.
Rodgers has taken on a big job at Celtic with Rangers back in the league to challenge them for honours next season, and the pressure of taking Celtic for a run in Europe is also a big challenge after recent seasons of failure.
It will be interesting to see where the new Celtic boss will look to find players to strengthen his team, and I can’t help but think that he will look to Anfield for recruitment.
Rodgers knows most of the players at Liverpool after having worked with them for so long and although he won’t have the money to sign the likes of Benteke or Moreno, (although it would be great if he could take them) he might be able to take some youngsters to Celtic Park.
Liverpool won’t have as many games next season after missing out on European football, so the youngsters at the club will struggle for opportunities next season, after all, it is expected that Klopp will bring some new players in to strengthen his squad too.
Liverpool’s situation will leave the younger players looking for loan deals with other clubs or moving on permanently to further their careers, and we could see a few of them playing in the green and white hoops next season.
