Liverpool sack Rodgers

After a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby, Liverpool sacked manager Brendan Rodgers. There has been much recent speculation about the future of Rodgers, so the sacking was not a complete surprise. However, the timing did seem strange, with Liverpool only 6 points off of 1st. Results and performances may not be as desired, but the club is certainly not in a desperate position. Also, why sack the manager after a result against rivals who are performing well in the league? Sacking him if they had lost heavily would have been more understandable.

Jurgen Klopp is the favourite to become the new manager, but has already said that he wants complete control over all transfers, something that Rodgers did not have. He will also be looking to have the club playing in his style, which is likely to take some time and require a transformation of players at the club. Klopp, assuming he does take the job, will need time and the financial backing of the owners, who will need to invest heavily to get the club back to challenging for the title.
