Report: Brendan Rodgers will keep the Liverpool job - on one condition

Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers will reportedly keep his job as Liverpool manager as long as he accepts the transfer committee is there to stay.

According to the Mirror, Brendan Rodgers will be safe in his role as Liverpool manager as long as he agrees to the transfer policy already in place at the Merseyside club.

The report states that Rodgers is expected to meet with Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon and club chairman Tom Werner this week, with the duo expected to arrive on Tuesday.

Rodgers is expected to push the belief that the club should invest more in experience, as well as youth, in an attempt to try and improve on last season’s disappointment.

The Reds, who spent more than £100million on players in the most recent campaign, had a very disappointing season and could only just secure a sixth place finish – eight points behind Manchester United in fourth, who filled the final Champions League berth.

Do Liverpool need more experience in their side?

Although one of the biggest arguments behind Liverpool’s struggles in 2014/15 was their lack of experience, they still had the likes of Steven Gerrard, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson in their side.

Experience may well be important on a few rare occasions, such as cup finals, but arguably not over the course of the season.

Out of the six nominees for the PFA player of the year award this season, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez (26) were the oldest. In fact, two of the six – Harry Kane and Philippe Coutinho – were under 23.

The current transfer policy at Liverpool is certainly a big issue. However, it’s not the age or experience of the players coming in that is the problem, it’s their ability.
