Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that there is a chance he could be sacked from his position if results do not improve, but has stressed that he will do everything in his powers to turn the club’s fortunes around.
The Anfield outfit has had an underwhelming start to the new season, with fresh faces taking time to bed-in on Merseyside and a number of disappointing results in recent weeks.
As such, the Northern Irishman is under mounting pressure to stop the rot and get Liverpool moving up the table once more.
With ambitions of finishing in the top four once more, anything less would surely be seen as a failure by the club’s ambitious foreign owners.
Rodgers has stressed that he will not walk away from the challenge but acknowledged that he could be relieved of his responsibilities if things do not start to improve in the near future.
“It happens through every level and in particularly at this level you know it goes on,” Rodgers admitted to The Guardian.
“You can never be too worried about it. Sixteen months ago we nearly won the league and I was manager of the year. Sixteen months later, you’re not so good at your job, when you’re actually better at your job.
“I think I’ve made it pretty clear – and I don’t like to go on too much about it – but I think I’ve shown what I can do when I have the tools to work, what I can deliver, so I don’t lose confidence with that.
“What I’ll always do is give my best to the club and if they decide they need to change, I’ll totally respect that. Because this is an incredible football club and all I want to do is see it succeed.
“If it isn’t with me, that’ll be for other people to decide. I know I’ve given everything. I’ll walk away and hopefully I’ll get into another job where I’ll get the chance to create something special.
“But my focus is still very much on the now and making us the best we possibly can be. Hopefully that will see me here for a longer period.”
