Rodgers wants consistency from Liverpool

Brendan Rodgers has warned his Liverpool players they have to deliver every time they step on to the pitch, insisting that those who are not capable of playing to the best of their ability every three days are unlikely to have a future at the Premier League club, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Liverpool have been through mixed form this season and currently sit 10th in the league table, winning six, drawing seven and losing six of their 19 matches under the former Swansea City boss.

With the transfer window opening in a matter of days, Rodgers has hinted that he is ready to sell those players he believes are not able to produce in every game they play for Liverpool. The manager added that he accepts there is not a cut-and-dried formula to find consistency, but also that for the money the club has paid for its players, they should be able to produce on a regular basis.

Rodgers said: “You can’t have a good game and then three days later have a poor game and then another good one. It’s about having a good game every day of your life. That’s what you get to look at as a manager and I’ve had a good time to assess that because of the smallness of our group. That’s a big part of the job.

There’s no question we have players with character, but it can’t be on tap. You can’t just turn it on when you want and then it goes back off again. It has to be on all the time if you want to progress. If a club is paying top dollar for top players, then you have to produce.
