Brendan Rodgers making decisions in Liverpool’s ‘best interests’
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists he is making decisions in the best interests of the club
Brendan Rodgers says he wants to steer Liverpool to a glorious future – and insists the decisions he makes are in the club’s best interests.
Liverpool suffered their first blip of the 2013/14 campaign after Southampton defender Dejan Lovren’s second-half strike sealed a 1-0 win for the visitors at Anfield on Saturday.
It was the Reds’ first loss of the season, and Liverpool dropped from top spot down to fifth place. However, Rodgers vowed to fight to get the club back to winning ways.
“I want to be the one that steers the club back in the direction that it should be going in,” Rodgers told TalkSport.
“That’s not easy but I know I’m making the decisions in the best interests of the club, and that will always be the case.
“There was a difficult period at the beginning but from that we’ve grown and become better and better. I’ve got great confidence that in the coming months and years, we can really push on with that development.
“It’s an incredible club – I’ve been on the outside, knowing Liverpool was a big club but it’s not until you actually come in that the sheer scale and status of the club is phenomenal.
“To be the one in charge, trying to, in this part of its history, put it on the right track and the right direction – I’m hugely privileged.
“I’ll fight for as long as I can to be here as long as I can; I know that’s about getting good results.”
Liverpool face Manchester United in their League Cup third-round tie at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
