Brendan Rodgers ready for new Liverpool deal

Published Add your comment

Brendan Rodgers is ready to put pen to paper on a new deal at Liverpool.

The former Swansea boss believes there is 'no doubt' that he will prolong his stay at Anfield, and has expressed his delight with his current crop of stars.

"There is no doubt that at some point we will agree another deal," Rodgers is quoted as saying on "I am sure of that."

Rodgers signed a three-year deal upon his arrival from Swansea, and that contract still has 14 months to run.

However, with the Liverpool hierarchy said to be delighted with the Northern Irishman's performance, the club are more than happy to improve his contract.

And Rodgers is similarly happy with the club, highlighting the club's stature in the game.

"This is a giant of a club in the football world and to be able to build it up again and see how the supporters, and also the general public, are enjoying Liverpool, is great." he said.

Liverpool take on Chelsea tomorrow in an epic title-tussle, and a win would put the Reds a step closer to that elusive first title of the Premier League era.

Supporters at Anfield have been waiting 24 years to celebrate a league championship, and Steven Gerrard and co. could well deliver it this season.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho meanwhile has been up to his old tricks.

The Portuguese asked permission to field a weakened side at Anfield on Sunday, claiming that his priority is the Champions League.

Rodgers, however, is not so sure: "Jose's a winner. He won't give up.

"There are certainly no mind games between him and me. He knows me well enough to know that it wouldn't bother me one iota what anyone says or does.

"I saw some stuff written about them maybe fielding a weaker team. I think that's hugely disrespectful to some of their players, if they're deemed to be the weaker ones in the squad.
"Whatever team they put out, it will have cost more money than ours, and it will be more experienced that ours."
