Mark Lawrenson: Liverpool Are Taking A Gamble With Rodgers

Posted by

Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson believes the appointment of Brendan Rodgers at Anfield is a gamble.

Speaking to the BBC, Lawrenson believes the club are taking a gamble on Rodgers who is poised to sign a three-year contract.

“It’s a great appointment for him and the biggest gamble the club have taken in a long time. Liverpool supporters will give him a chance. They will give him time. But if they don’t look like finishing anywhere near top four, what do the owners do?”

¬†“Rodgers has done a great job at Swansea, everyone loves the way they play their football.
“The chance for Brendan to manage a club which is in the top 10 in the country was too much to resist. It’s a different challenge for him, the club will be expected to win every game.¬†Liverpool spent an awful lot of money last season, there’s no doubt they overspent. It’s a big job for Rodgers because he’ll be responsible for everything as there’s no director of football.”
