Northern Irishman Brendan Rodgers has been relived as Liverpool manager after his side's 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.


Rodgers has been under pressure after a mixed start to the season that has left them off the pace with their top-four rivals.

In a joint FSG statement, principal owner John W Henry, chairman Tom Werner and president Mike Gordon said:

“We would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Brendan Rodgers for the significant contribution he has made to the club and express our gratitude for his hard work and commitment.

“All of us have experienced some wonderful moments with Brendan as manager and we are confident he will enjoy a long career in the game.

“Although this has been a difficult decision, we believe it provides us with the best opportunity for success on the pitch. Ambition and winning are at the heart of what we want to bring to Liverpool and we believe this change gives us the best opportunity to deliver it.

“The search for a new manager is underway and we hope to make an appointment in a decisive and timely manner.”

Jurgen Klopp, Carlo Ancelotti and Frank de Boer have all been linked with the job in recent weeks.
