About Time for Rodgers at Liverpool?
Yesterday marked the final nail on the coffin for Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool, after a 1-1 draw against Merseyside rivals Everton.
The Reds are currently 10th in the Premier League after failing to beat the Roberto Martinez' side, leaving Liverpool with only one win in the last 9 games.
The decision to release Rodgers from his duties as manager was made just after the game on Sunday.
However, it is at some debate as to whether or not it was the right time for the ex-manager to end his reign at the club.
Last season saw very little success for Rodgers and his Liverpool side, and fans were no longer convinced that this season would be any different. It is true however that his job was made much more demanding after losing the likes of Suarez in 2014 and Sterling this season; and with no comparable replacements - success proved difficult. Despite spending over £291 million, there has been few accomplishments with the new signings.
Liverpool have enhanced little during the early months of this season, particularly after losing 6-1 to a superior Stoke City side back in May last season. Or being defeated by their Manchester rivals United in September. Are these failings a hangover after not winning the title last year?
The Reds play on the 17th of this month, and on the bright side the club don't have to rush the appointment of a fresh face for management. Jurgen Klopp is favourite to replace the ex Liverpool boss, who is very keen to manage in the top flight of English football. Could this be Liverpool's time to bounce back?
Rodgers has travelled to Spain to get away from the attention, and now has precious time to think about where his career may take him next.
