Liverpool manager set for four year Anfield stay

Brendan Rodgers, who could still win the Premier League with Liverpool depending on results from the final day, is said to have agreed a new contract with his current club, Mirror reports.

The deal is set to be confirmed in the next few days when the Northern Irish manager puts pen to paper to finalize the offer which would eventually make him the highest paid manager in the Premier League with a further four season extension on his current one.

His recent success with the Reds have made him a big name in Europe with a majority of huge clubs, one being Barcelona, who have picked Rodgers as a worthy candidate to take over from Gerardo Martino.

However, with the confirmation, Liverpool fans will feel safe as their manager will be given time to build the perfect squad as they once again set their sights on the English Premier League with the addition of the UEFA Champions League.

This season has almost gone perfect for the Liverpool boss, but a recent hiccup in the 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace left the Premier League title in the hands of Manchester City, who cannot afford to drop any points entering their last two matches.

The boss also spoke highly about the current owners, saying: “I would like to thank the owners and the executive team for what they have done for me since I have been here,” he said. “They gave me, a young guy of 39 years old, the chance to develop the vision of football that I have.

“If they didn’t have faith in me, I wouldn’t be here because that is what modern football is like.”
