Rodgers: “I’ve turned down five offers since leaving Reds”

Posted by

Former boss Brendan Rodgers has claimed he’s turned down five job offers since he left us in October.

According to the Echo, the Northern Irishman rejected his old club Swansea, along with four other sides.

“I have had five opportunities since I left Liverpool to get back into work, all at clubs I really respect, but I just felt I wanted to take some time out,” he said. “It is very intense when you are in the game.”

“I enjoy the scrutiny, and life of being at the leading edge of the game, but that opportunity that presented itself when I left Liverpool gave me the chance to go away for the first time in five years and sit and reflect on how I work and can improve and I hope my next club will benefit from that.”

He went on to say he that he wasn’t going to restrict himself to jobs in England.

“I am open. It is where I feel I can go in and make a difference: a job that will excite me,” he said. “It doesn’t have to necessarily be at a top club. It can be at home or abroad. It is just about finding the right opportunity, one that will excite me to go in and somewhere I can help make better.”
