Rodgers set to decide on Stewart Downing’s future

Stewart Downing Stewart Downing wants to stay at Liverpool but knows Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will have the final say on his future.

In the first half of the season the England international could hardly get a game and when he did, it was sometimes at left-back.

Rodgers told him in November he could find another club when the January transfer window opened, but injuries provided an opening in the team and the 28-year-old seized his chance.

Now the former Aston Villa man believes he has done enough to prove he is worth a place in the side moving forward but knows Rodgers will have the final say.

“That’s football for you,” he said. “Me and the manager have always had open conversations and I found it difficult at the start of the season because I didn’t play, it wasn’t that I wasn’t playing well.

“Once I got in the team and had a run of games my form picked up and I think the team got better and better and we’ve had some good results, especially after Christmas.

“There have been some positive signs and personally I’d like to stay but that is the manager’s decision.”
