Liverpool owners John W.Henry and Tom Werner have begun ‘assessing’ whether to sack Brendan Rodgers following the Reds poor start to the season, according to the Metro.
The publication says reports emerging from an Italian website says the clubs owners are disappointed with the club’s start to the 2014-15 campaign, which has seen them fall 15 points behind league leaders Chelsea after just 11 matches, despite spending more than £100million on new players in the summer.
The Reds Champions League future also hangs in the balance following three consecutive group game defeats, meaning the Rodgers side needs to win their final two matches against FC Ludogorets and FC Basel to have any chance of progressing to the last 16.
The website claims no decision has been taken yet, however the Northern Irishman’s future ‘hangs in the balance’, with his controversial team selection against Real Madrid the other week also proving an issue.
Rodgers fielded a side for the game in the Bernabeu which saw the likes of Kolo Toure, Lucas Leiva, Emre Can and Fabio Borini replace Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli.
The Liverpool boss has come in for criticism since, especially after fielding those players in the latest defeat to Chelsea whilst insisting he had no regrets about a decision which left many supporters upset.
