Rodgers: How long he wants to stay at Liverpool and future plans

Brendan Rogers Press Conference Smiling - 16/02/2014

Brendan Rodgers has been speaking about his Liverpool future.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been speaking to Spanish newspaper AS about his hopes for the future.

In an extensive interview with Guillem Balague, the Reds boss answered a whole host of questions, but perhaps the most interesting one for the Anfield faithful was the one regarding his long-term future.

When asked where he saw himself in five years, the Liverpool boss said, “I don’t know. I hope one day to work in Spain. I’ve studied Spanish, but I need to improve.

“I’ll probably improve when I work in the country one day.”

So does that mean Rodgers will soon be on his way? Perhaps not, as he went on to explain what he wants to achieve with his current club.

“I’m only 41 which is very young,” he said, “and there are lots of things I want to achieve here at Liverpool. It’s an incredible club and I hope to be managing here for another 20 odd years.

“One day hopefully it can take me to Spain and I can experience a wonderful country, culture, and as I said, some wonderful football clubs.”

So it seems Rodgers has big plans at Liverpool, and if he really is there for the next two decades, given some of the exciting young talent currently coming through, he could oversee a period of sustained success on Merseyside.
