Brendan Rodgers is "150 per cent" certain he will still be in charge of Liverpool next season regardless of the outcome of the review into the club's campaign.

Rodgers meets Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon, a key member of Liverpool's ownership team, after the final Premier League game with Stoke City tomorrow.

And, as far as the Liverpool manager is concerned, the assessment of performance, strategy and policy is a regular occurrence rather than a threat to his position. Despite that, the circumstances are significantly different to a year ago when the team had just missed out on the title.


Answers will be sought for why Liverpool have fallen short of all their targets.

Asked if he was assured of his position, Rodgers said: "Yes, 150 per cent."

On the discussions ahead, he believes the questions are focused on the implementation of the club's plans. "I'm constantly reviewing with the owners," he said. "There have been a number of reviews. Throughout the season I've had great communication with the owners.

"I'll speak with them at the end of the season like I did last year, like I did at the end of my first year.

"It is very clear in terms of the model of how it works here. That doesn't change. There are constant questions asked of me in terms of strategy." (© Daily Telegraph, London)
