Liverpool round-up: Jordon Ibe sent Brendan Rodgers message after he was sacked

Published Add your comment

Liverpool fans, hola, bonjour, hallo.

Welcome to today’s round-up, we hope it delivers all you were expecting and more.

One thing we can promise is that you’ll leave this page far more clued up on the latest gossip and news doing the rounds than you were when you arrived. Without further ado, we give to you…

Ibe deals with Rodgers' sacking

How does a footballer react when their manager is sacked?

We’re sure different people have different ways of handling it, but Jordon Ibe has offered an insight into one way of coping with the change - stating that he was shocked when Brendan Rodgers was given the boot.


The former Liverpool boss was sacked after a draw with Everton earlier this season and Ibe said he hadn’t had time to say a proper goodbye.

Instead, he sent Rodgers a message to say his farewells. We’ve sadly got no idea if Rodgers sent anything back.

"It was a bit of a shock to hear he had gone," Ibe said.

"With it happening a few hours after the derby game there was no real chance to say a proper goodbye.

"I sent him a message. I think managers and players leaving clubs is a part of the game now."

Fans weren't all that bothered, mind:

Rodgers in London

Elsewhere, Rodgers himself has sparked gossip by apparently being seen in London checking out schools.

As speculation continues to build concerning what job in football he’ll take on next, the rumours have become more and more interesting - Chelsea anyone?

I mean, we’re well aware a club like Fulham or QPR would probably be a more suitable detail at this point, but who knows?

Ilori return possible

Lastly, Tiago Ilori has become something of a forgotten man at Anfield but could yet be sent back to Merseyside by new Aston Villa manager Remi Garde, according to reports.


It’s said Villa have the option to purchase the defender for anything between £6million and £9m, but Garde could decide that he doesn’t want Ilori on a permanent basis. We’ll keep you updated as and when we know more.
