'Brendan Rodgers out' banner flown over Anfield during QPR game

Published 5 Comments

Prior to the Premier League game between Liverpool and QPR, a plane with a banner attached to it flew over Anfield.

The banner, claimed to be made by the 'Rodgers Out Club', displayed the words 'Rodgers Out, Rafa In', in reference to a desire for the return of former Reds manager Rafa Benitez.


Following their close push for the title last season before losing out to Manchester City, Liverpool have suffered a less than successful season this time around. With a group stage exit from the Champions League, as well as two domestic cup semi-final exits and likely missing out on Champions League football for next season, there have been some rumours that Brendan Rodgers's position may be under threat.

These rumours haven't been confirmed by the club, but a small minority of fans have clearly shown their stance on the Northern Irishman. This is not the first time a situation like this has happened.

In fact, last season the same incident occurred in Manchester United's 4-1 win at home to Aston Villa, where a banner saying 'Wrong One - Moyes Out' flew over Old Trafford, calling for United manager at the time, David Moyes, to be sacked. Moyes did lose his job soon after and this incident is the last thing Rodgers would have wanted to see.

Despite the fact that Liverpool's season this time around has not been quite as bad as Manchester United's last season, this will most likely bring fresh questions over the future of Liverpool's boss.
