Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre is full of praise for Brendan Rodgers and has admitted that it’s the very philosophy of their famous manager that has been the leading push behind the club’s prosperity all through the season.

With ten games remaining for 2013-14 schedule, Liverpool are in the 2nd status in Barclays Premier League, training the present lead Chelsea, by simply 4 points. Rodgers’ dynamic football and edgy attacking style have excited the Red fans & with around 73 strikes at 28 matches, Liverpool is the highest scorer of the division.

Ayre hailed up results as produced by the Northern Irish manager within less than a couple of years at helm post courageously taking up the enormous challenge of resurrecting Liverpool’s success.

“All of us had huge faith in Rodgers while he was taken in as new manager & I feel that he had quite a grand challenge before him”, noted Ayre. “All of us did, yet no body more than Rodgers as he arrives at one among the grandest of soccer clubs of the world. It’s needless to mention that expectations are always high here & so are the works.”

“In his initial season, he admitted that he had to work hard to find his feet & propagate his style & vision to the squad. I feel what we’ve found this very year would cheer growth & prosper in the team. And we would go on adding to our squad & backing him in having additional footballers into the squad.”

“Efforts from both Berndan & our footballers have been really astounding this time. I especially like the fact that Rodgers works with team & sets season into small chunks ensuring 4-5 game runs”, the managing director added further.


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he wants a quick decision on the future of Andy Carroll, who has been linked with a permanent move to West Ham in the summer. The striker spent the season on loan at the London club, and it is understood that there have been negotiations conducted between the two parties to make the deal permanent. The striker has not been part of Brendan Rodgers’ plans from the day the manager arrived just over a year ago. He does not fit into the passing style of football adopted by the former Swansea manager.

Carroll has enjoyed success after a long time at West Ham, as he has been perfect for West Ham manager Sam Allardyce’s style of play. The striker was injured for most of the campaign, but a strong finish to the season is thought to have persuaded the West Ham owners to discuss a possible deal for the striker. The striker finished the season with 7 goals in his 24 league matches this season. However, he has contributed a lot to the team in terms of creating chances due to his physical presence. West Ham are expected to make a £ 15 million offer for the player who cost Liverpool a British transfer record fee of £ 35 million.

“It’s a difficult one. I spoke to him and we had a good chat. The boy is a talent. It’s just something we need to assess between now and the end of window. In terms of the money, that’s something out of my control. But he’s a talent so we will assess the whole situation. The objective at the beginning of the season was for him to go out and play,” said the Liverpool manager, who brought in Daniel Sturridge during the January transfer window.
