Liverpool’s hierarchy has agreed a deal with Northern Irish boss Brendan Rodgers to keep him at the club until 2018, reports the Guardian.
The 41-year-old has agreed the deal in principle, and is expected to sign the four year extension in the very near future.
Rodgers has guided his team superbly this Premier League season, outscoring every other side in European football, and giving themselves a chance of winning the title on the final day of the season.
At Liverpool’s end of season awards last night, the manager rallied his troops ahead of Sunday’s game, and promised supporters that they’d be going all out for a win.
“The players have been incredible and they have allowed the supporters to dream,” he said.
“To be the club that is top of the league by one point with one week to go, and you never know what might happen, has taken a huge effort. The only thing I will promise is that while I am here we’ll fight for our lives. Our season doesn’t finish until after Newcastle.”
He added: “I would also like to thank the owners and the executive team for what they have done for me since I have been here. They brought a young manager of 39 into one of the biggest clubs in the world and gave me the chance to develop the vision of football that I have. If it wasn’t for their faith in me I probably wouldn’t be here given the pressures of modern football.”
