Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes he can replace the departing Luis Suarez with another English manager within the next two months, but there is a chance Rodgers could have a different idea on how to do it.
Rodgers left Liverpool for Manchester City in January 2015, and the former Liverpool captain believes his successor should be an English manager, not someone from overseas.
“It’s not an easy decision to make, but I’d like to make it,” Rodgers said.
“I’d like him to have experience at the top level, I’d also like him [to be] at a club that is the best in Europe, because we are a bit far from that in terms of football.”
So, I don’t think there’s a need to look at somebody from overseas or an international manager or somebody who’s not really experienced in English football.
“The Reds boss said that a number of Premier League managers have been offered jobs, but that he’d like his own team to take over next season.”
Rodgers said that he wanted to keep the club “in the Champions League, in the Champions Cup, and to go on to the final of the Champions Trophy.”””
I think we’re in a situation now where the best way to go is to be in charge and I’m confident that’s the best position for me.”
Rodgers said that he wanted to keep the club “in the Champions League, in the Champions Cup, and to go on to the final of the Champions Trophy.”
“It would be a massive achievement if we’d go on and win it, so I’d love that to happen,” he added.
“If it does, then we will have a real shot at it.”
For the next 12 months we’ll have a chance to work on this together.
I’d be delighted to do that.
