Brendan Rodgers signs new Liverpool contract

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have been handed a boost with the news that manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new deal with the club.

According to The Daily Star, Northern Irishman Rodgers has penned a new contract - worth £3.5 million-per-year - to stay at Anfield until 2018.

Rodgers has been in charge on Merseyside for two years now, with the 2013/14 campaign demonstrating remarkable progress.

Despite only being expected to launch a spirited challenge for Champions League qualification, Liverpool kept themselves in contention for the Premier League title for almost the entire season - eventually falling to Manchester City at the final hurdle.

Rodgers himself has come on leaps and bounds in recent seasons, with his impressive spells at Swansea - the club he guided into the Premier League - and Liverpool having proved his managerial qualities following a disastrous 10-month stint in charge at Reading.

After signing a new deal and making sure of his future, the next step for Rodgers will be to spend wisely during the next transfer window and ensure that Liverpool are able to capitalise on such an encouraging season.

Strengthening an extremely shaky backline must be a priority, in addition to remaining firm in the face of inevitable interest in the likes of Luis Suarez.
