LIVERPOOL HAVE NO plans to dismiss Brendan Rodgers as manager, according to the latest widespread reports.

Fenway Sports Group, the owners of the club, are expected to ignore supporter unrest and remain loyal to the Northern Irish manager, as they prepare to review a largely disappointing campaign in which the club finished sixth — a significant drop from coming second last season, despite spending £115million in transfer fees during the summer.

As recently as last week, Rodgers insisted he was “150%” certain that he would be Liverpool manager next season.

However, an embarrassing 6-1 final-day loss to Stoke cast further doubt on his future, as did Rodgers’ comments after the match in question, as he stated: “If the owners want me to go, I’ll go.”

Meanwhile, one individual who has been linked with a return to Liverpool in recent times, Napoli boss Rafa Benitez, looks set to take over as manager of Real Madrid.
