Rodgers denies Liverpool exit talk

RODGERS-CANLIVERPOOL, March 7- Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has expressed his desire to stay at Anfield for many years to come after being linked with the manager’s post at Manchester City.

The Ulsterman picked up the LMA Manager of the Year accolade last season after narrowly missing out on the Premier League title. He was subsequently rewarded with a new four-year contract, which he signed on 26 May 2014.

And after an inconsistent and somewhat underwhelming start to the current campaign, Rodgers has managed to steady the ship at Anfield.

The Reds are the Premier League’s form team in 2015, prompting some sections of the English press to link him Manuel Pellegrini’s position at City.

However, Rodgers has no interest in such suggestions, insisting he is determined to forge a dynasty worthy of his Liverpool predecessors.

He said: “I’ve signed a deal here, and I want to be here to see that through.

“Then I hope I’ll have earned enough time to warrant another deal, to keep growing and building here.

“Where do you go from Liverpool, who are one of the biggest clubs in the world?

“I chose to come to Liverpool because I hoped I could be here for many years.”

However, Rodgers admits that his prospects of a lengthy stay at the Reds helm are dependant on his ability to add to Liverpool’s already impressive trophy collection.

He added: “I really wanted to be here, follow some incredible managers with a support that is unrivalled, and to have success while knowing I was young enough to create and build something.

“That is why I came here. I know I need to justify that by working well and winning trophies. I hope that is the next step.

“When you come here, that is what you are judged on. It is something (win trophies) I want to do for all the supporters and people here.”
