Shelvey wants to win Merseyside derby for Liverpool boss Rodgers

Jonjo Shelvey has thanked Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for showing faith in him, and insists he wants to win Sunday’s Merseyside derby with Everton for the manager, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Shelvey moved to Liverpool in 2010 for £1.5m, signed from Charlton Athletic by Rafael Benitez, but despite only spending just over two years at Anfield the England international is now being led by his fourth manager.

Benitez soon vacated the premises and was replaced by Roy Hodgson, who lasted less than a year before being sacked, joining West Bromwich Albion and eventually ascending to the England job, where he gave Shelvey a first cap against San Marino recently.

Hodgson was succeeded by Kenny Dalglish, who, according to the Telegraph, Shelvey believes to have played a large part in Liverpool’s initial interest in him. But Dalglish was not long for the job either, being sacked in the summer to make way for the current incumbent, Rodgers.

Under Rodgers, Shelvey has begun to establish himself in the Liverpool first team, and the 20-year-old feels he owes a debt to the former Swansea City boss. He said: “I always go on the pitch thinking that I don’t want to let the manager down but probably more so with Brendan because he has given me so many chances. He has been first class. He has put his trust in me and I want to keep repaying him.
