Bookies now believe Brendan Rodgers will be the first manager issued with his P45 next season.
On the same day that next season’s Premier League fixtures were announced, Brendan Rodgers has been installed as 5/2 favourite to be the first manager sacked, according to Paddy Power. Although Rodgers survived John Henry’s end-of-season review, he is still on shaky ground it seems.
The news comes on the back of a renewed bid by Manchester City for Raheem Sterling, creating even more angst among Liverpool supporters.
The Reds will begin their season away to Stoke City, the location of their 6-1 drubbing against the Potters on the final day of last season. The Merseysiders face a difficult beginning to the 2015/16 season, having to travel to Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton, Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester City before the end of November.
It seems even the fixture list is conspiring against Rodgers.
