Following the defeat to Stoke on Sunday – that rounded off a largely disappointing campaign – many Liverpool supporters have been calling for Brendan Rodgers’ head.
However, those fans are set to be disappointed as the Liverpool Echo report that the manager is set to keep his job, after Fenway Sports Group reportedly decided that his future is not an item on the agenda when they come to review the campaign.
With Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti, and now even Roberto Di Matteo on the market, there have been plenty of calls for a boss that has greater experience on a continental level. All three have reached the final of the Champions League, while the latter pair have gone on to win the trophy. Rodgers in comparison, has just one year in the competition, and failed to take us out of the group phase.
As the market has never seemed so populated with such esteemed replacements, there is a real desire to bid a farewell to the Northern Irishman. Despite some high points, the troubles this year cannot be forgotten.
Here are some of the tweets from fans disgruntled that Rodgers is set to stay:
Its gonna be like a Newcastle/Villa situation with us and Rodgers. Hes gonna stay for too long and damage us and himself more.

I can’t see how Rodgers job is safe! From finishing 2nd to finishing under Tottenham in 2 years is absolutely shocking. — Joe (@Joe_Rees97) May 26, 2015

Surly Rodgers knows us as fans no longer want him at our club so why doesn’t he walk? — Matthew (@Matt__Hickman) May 26, 2015
I’ve always backed Rodgers but we need change. Now is the time considering how many world class managers are available. #LFC
