Brendan Rodgers: Tipped for quick return to management

LMA chief executive Richard Bevan is confident “talented” and “forward-thinking” Brendan Rodgers will not be out of work for long.

The Northern Irishman was relieved of his duties after Sunday’s 1-1 Merseyside derby draw after owners Fenway Sports Group decided a change was needed to deliver success.

“Brendan is without doubt one of the most talented and forward-thinking British managers in the game,” Bevan said.

“His abilities were formally recognised in 2014, when his peers voted him LMA Manager of the Year following his brilliant work at Liverpool, which very nearly guided them to the Barclays Premier League title.

“His time at Liverpool has demonstrated he has both the skills and personality to manage at the highest levels of the game.

“Brendan has dedicated his entire professional life to developing players and teams, and I am certain that with his knowledge and passion for the game it won’t be too long before he finds a new challenge.”

Rodgers has already been linked with the Sunderland vacancy, with Nigel Pearson, Sam Allardyce and Sean Dyche all mentioned as possible appointments at BetBright.
