Rodgers wants long-term Liverpool stay

Brendan Rodgers is eager to sign a new contract at Liverpool but confirmed there have been no talks yet with his superiors at Anfield, ESPN has reported.

Rodgers replaced Kenny Dalglish in the summer of 2012 and has this season taken Liverpool back into the top four. The Reds are currently three points clear of fifth-place Tottenham Hotspur and after beating Arsenal 5-1 on Saturday, are only six points short of top spot.

“The club knows my feelings in that I love it here and hopefully – if I can progress and be good and everyone is happy – stay here,” Rodgers said.

“If it’s not to be for the owners and they want a different direction at the end of it, I will have done my best.

“I have, after this year, one more year to go. I have always said I am very happy here and we’re just over halfway through that contract and it is not something that comes into my thinking.

“If I was to never get offered one, I would give my life to the last day of that contract. In the meantime, until anyone says otherwise or wants to reward the staff or myself for our work, then we keep working as normal and see where it takes us.

“The option is for the club for the fourth year, but in all fairness there is a point next year where the club has to let me know whether they want to keep me on or not.”

Rodgers added that he is more concerned with the form of the team and the performances of his players than his future, a position he says is shared by the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.
