Rodgers sets out Anfield vision

Published Add your comment

New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers exerted his authority in his interview with the club's owners by insisting he would not work under a director of football.

The 39-year-old has shown great strength of character throughout the whole recruitment process and turned down an initial approach a fortnight ago as he wanted to be considered first choice and not just one of many options.

When it was made clear to him by Fenway Sports Group (FSG) this week that he was their preferred option, he relented somewhat but he was not prepared to compromise on his ideals. Rodgers said: "It is one of the items I brought up when I was speaking to the club was that I wouldn't directly work with a director of football."
