Liverpool part ways with manager following Everton draw

Liverpool have decided to sack manager Brendan Rodgers after his side drew 1-1 in the Merseyside derby against Everton, according to reports from Skysports.

The 42-year-old was already under pressure before heading into their latest fixture, with the club expecting all three points at the weekend.

A statement from their official website confirmed that Rodgers has indeed left the club, with the current owners thanking him for his contribution since his arrival back in 2012.

He guided his side to a second place in the Premier League back in the 2013-2014 season, but struggled to replicate the form last term following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, finishing seventh.

After their last match, the Reds have now gone nine games without a win, a factor that looks to have aided in the decision for the club to let him go.

It is still unknown who will be called in to replace him at the moment, but both Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp are amongst the names being linked.
