12 reasons it would be ridiculous for Liverpool to axe Rodgers

Brendan Rogers Press Conference Smiling - 16/02/2014

Liverpool would be making an awful decision if they pulled the trigger on Brendan Rodgers.

The Mirror has suggested that rumblings of discontent and frustration pointing towards the potential axing of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers are flawed and they’re correct.

The Reds boss has been challenged in several ways this season, with fresh challenges that he didn’t have to face up to when Liverpool nearly won the Premier League title last season.

There is pressure from a small group of the club’s fans to move the gaffer on but here’s a list of reasons Liverpool are not going to axe Rodgers:

The squad has suffered from injuries this season; four key players with good first team chances are still in the treatment room.

Daniel Sturridge could go goal crazy, changing the fortunes of the side, when he returns.

He has a contract until 2018.

His winning percentage is nearly one in two.

Liverpool are still in the Champions League.

Liverpool are still in the League Cup.

Liverpool could win the FA Cup, which hasn’t even started yet.

His relationship with owner John Henry is positive.

His relationship with younger players is positive; Raheem sterling the classic example of what he can do with a talented youngster.

Liverpool are seventh in the Premier League and could retain their top four place.

The January transfer market provides a chance to sell deadwood and buy better players.

After Chelsea this weekend, Liverpool don’t play a perceived ‘big’ side until mid-December when they take on Manchester United. A good chance to go on a run and create positivity.
