Brendan Rodgers safe at Liverpool for now but major improvements needed

The ESPN FC panel discuss Brendan Rodgers' future at Liverpool and believe he is not capable enough to manage the club.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol does not believe the job Jurgen Klopp wants is available which may be the reasoning for his decision to take a break from management, indicating it may be likely Brendan Rodgers will continue to be in charge of Liverpool.
Rodgers is staying at Liverpool for now but he has his work cut out if he is to stay a long time.

Brendan Rodgers might be the luckiest man in English football right now.

"Judge me in three years," he famously said. Well those three years are up and the fans' verdict is in. If it were up to the overwhelming majority of them he'd have been looking for a new job before the final whistle had even blown at the Britannia Stadium as the Reds crashed to their worst defeat in over half a century to leave them languishing in sixth place. Fortunately for Rodgers, his employers took a more lenient view.

Nathaniel Clyne in Rodgers' sights as Liverpool look to boost defence

With the season now over, attention turns to the transfer window and every day this week, we'll be analysing the different areas in Liverpool's squad. Next up are the defenders.

Sum up the defensive situation at the club

Uncertain. Despite heavy investment and a renewed focus on becoming more resolute, Liverpool conceded just two goals fewer this year compared to last. The numbers are skewed by the concession of nine goals in the final two games and at times throughout the year the Reds were solid...

James Milner, Liverpool close to deal ahead of talks - sources

The ESPN FC panel respond to the reports suggesting James Milner rejected an offer from Manchester City.
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner addresses Manchester City's concerns in defence for next season, while Steve Nicol feels Manuel Pellegrini's side need to place emphasis on a consistent centre back.

Liverpool are set to hold talks with James Milner in the hope of securing a deal to sign him within days, sources confirmed to ESPN FC.

The midfielder, whose contract at Manchester City is about to expire, is expected to agree to move to Anfield on a free transfer, sources said. Multiple British outlets, including the Guardian and the BBC, earlier reported the news.

If the deal is completed, Milner would officially join the Reds on July 1.

Liverpool would sanction Sterling swap for Walcott and Gibbs - sources

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes the rumoured swap of Raheem Sterling for Kieran Gibbs and Theo Walcott makes sense for both sides.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley explains why he believes Raheem Sterling should leave Anfield this season.

Liverpool have told Arsenal that they will only do a deal for want-away winger Raheem Sterling if Theo Walcott and Kieran Gibbs are included, sources have told ESPN FC.

Sterling, 20, is refusing to sign a new contract at Anfield and is widely expected to leave before his current deal expires in the summer of 2017.

Would swapping Sterling for Walcott and Gibbs be a fair deal?

Liverpool have said repeatedly that he is not for sale, but with the contract saga continuing, they are attempting to leverage any deal so it bests suits them.

Indeed, sources close to...

Brendan Rodgers is set to remain as Liverpool manager, according to sources.

Brendan Rodgers remains safe as Liverpool's manager following talks with chairman Tom Werner, sources told ESPN FC.

Rodgers met Werner and Mike Gordon, president of the club's American owners Fenway Sports Group, on Tuesday. The discussions, which took place at Liverpool's city centre offices as part of an end-of-season review, were constructive, sources said.

FSG have continued to back Rodgers despite a poor end to the season that culminated in a humiliating 6-1 Premier League defeat at Stoke.
