Ex-Liverpool coaches at high risk of losing their jobs


It is gratifying to see that so many managers in the Premier League this season have had pasts in the Liverpool coaching staff. In fact, there are currently four former Reds holding first-class managerial positions. Brendan Rodgers, Steve Cooper and Steven Gerrard are in charge of coaching Leicester, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa respectively, while Gary O’Neill takes over as interim manager of Bournemouth after Scott Parker was sacked in August.

It is not gratifying to see that the three with permanent jobs are the three who, according to many bookmakers, are most at risk of becoming the next manager in the Premier League to lose their jobs.

After a terrible start to the season, Rodgers has been the thinnest, but Cooper and Gerrard also have the advantage of being impressed this season and living on downtime.

Rodgers and Leicester, after a summer when there wasn’t a penny, have struggled hard lately. Their last two matches ended in a 5-2 loss away to Brighton and a 6-2 loss to Tottenham this weekend.

After battling for fourth place and winning the FA Cup, it looks like it’s about to end for the man who was appointed ten years ago as Liverpool’s manager, and many believe it’s now a matter of time before the Northern Irishman is done with it. the work.

Cooper is another person who has gone from being a hero to being under pressure. He did a fantastic job of sending Forest out of the championship last season, but after spending huge sums to sign a whopping 21 players this summer, the former Liverpool academy coach’s patience is running out. The team only has four points after seven games, but we can hope the owners understand that it takes time to get a team with many new players to play well together.

Last season he secured approval when he steadily led the FIA ​​out of the relegation battle, but now the demands are even tougher. Football has been far from festive at Villa Park so far, and despite the 1-0 win over Southampton at the weekend, seven points from seven games was not a respite for the once-popular Scouse at Rangers when he took over difficult team.
