Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a contract extension with his present club. The deal will see the iconic manager at the helm until 2018 (barring contrary circumstances) and is a boost for Liverpool Football Club.
The Northern Irishman took the footballing world by storm by coming a close second in the race for the Premier League, almost ending Liverpool's long search for a league title.
Rodgers has also attracted interest from many clubs owing to his success. His ideologies and tactics have reignited Liverpool's fire with a new vibrant and youthful team who will be a force to reckon with next season. Already, Liverpool's Champions League qualification has got many opponents sweating.
Principal owner of Liverpool John Henry and Chairman of the club Tom Werner are quoted saying: “We are very fortunate to have a hugely talented individual leading our football performance and in whom we place our trust to deliver the vision we share for Liverpool Football Club.
“Brendan is at the heart of what we, as an ownership group, are trying to achieve on the pitch. This season has reaffirmed everyone’s belief that we can bring football success to Liverpool and we are all committed to working together to achieve that. Players and supporters have made it clear how important Brendan is to our success and so to have him commit to us for the long term is a great boost for everyone going forward.”
What remains to be seen now is how far financially, the board is willing to back Rodgers. The manager will also have his hands full over the summer, trying to ward of poachers of his players, brimming with talent as they are.
Liverpool fans can meanwhile rest assured of a stable 4 season ahead.
