Jamie Carragher believes Liverpool must stick with Brendan Rodgers after opting against sacking the Northern Irish coach in the summer and handing him over £70 million to spend on new signings.

The former Reds defender, who now works as a pundit on Sky Sports, was understandably perturbed while discussing Liverpool’s disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Norwich City on Sunday afternoon.

An increasing number of Liverpool supporters are voicing their discontent with the under-performing Rodgers on social media, with many calling for Anfield officials to replace him with either Jurgen Klopp or Carlo Ancelotti.

But Carragher feels Rodgers needs to be handed until at least Christmas to prove he’s still the right man for the main job at Anfield after being granted permission to spend big in the summer.

"They decided to give him the benefit of the doubt at the start of the summer,” Carragher was quoted as saying by the Mirror. "If you give him that much money, then after eight or nine games why make the change?

"In their last 18 games, they haven't scored more than one goal and that's the problem for a manager who is attack-minded like Brendan Rodgers."

Liverpool playing risky game by waiting

Following their score draw against the Canaries, Liverpool find themselves 13th in the Premier League table, with eight points secured from a possible 18.

The risk for Liverpool is that, if they wait too long, both Klopp and Ancelotti will have been lured elsewhere.
