Fenway Sports Group are already planning for life without manager Brendan Rodgers – reports Goal.com. Liverpool’s American owners are in the process of drawing up a list of managerial candidates who could take over.
It is believed that they have begun to lose faith in Rodgers, following a miserable start to the new season in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
Rodgers spent £117m in a summer spree which included the signings of Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Mario Balotelli, but has still struggled to accommodate the loss of star player Luis Suarez.
According to sources involved in the process, potential successors have been contacted to assess their suitability for, and interest in, the position. The approach is described as ‘very informal’.
Rodgers was rewarded with an improved four-year contract after overseeing a wholly unexpected second-place finish last season, but John W Henry and co are not afraid of making a change should it be needed, with Borussia Dortmund’s Jurgen Klopp an early favourite for the role.
