Rodgers suggests Premier League job is too ‘frightening’

Former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has hit out at the culture of sacking managers in the Premier League.

Rodgers’ last spell in England came to an end when Liverpool showed him the door in October 2015.

The Northern Irishman almost brought the Premier League to Anfield in the 2013/14 season, but a difficult follow-up campaign and poor start the following season brought about his demise.

Rodgers has since guided Celtic to a 100-year record-breaking domestic run, and has earned himself a Premier League reprieve.

But the 44-year-old says that managing in the division is “frightening” for a manager due to its short-termist nature.

“I look at the Premier League and you have virtually got a six-week cycle and that’s frightening as a coach and a manager,” he said.

“It used to be you managed the club and dealt with the club but lots of times now you are managing in a six-week cycle and if you have a bad four or five weeks you can be out of work and that way you’re never going to progress as a club.”
