What’s next for Bredan Rodgers?

Just over two months into the 2015-2016 season, and the confidence and charm of Brendan Rodgers proved to be worn all too thin with both Kopites and the Liverpool hierarchy alike.

However the northern Irishman is still deemed as an excellent coach and motivator (particularly for younger players, as evidenced by the development of Raheem Sterling and Phillipe Coutinho under his tutelage) by his peers, therefore it is very likely that we shall be seeing his tailored suits and beaming smile on the touchline again very soon.

Here are some of the potential destinations that could await Rodgers:

Aston Villa

A somewhat surprising potential destination, the dugout at Villa Park, which is currently occupied by the forever entertaining Londoner Tim Sherwood is being touted as the next point of call for Brendan. The Villains have amassed a measly 4 points all season, with their only victory coming against a newly promoted Bournemouth side in the very first game of the season.

It has been quoted in various different newspaper and online sources such as Football365.com and The Mirror that Sherwood only has ‘two games’ to save his job, with time being called on his Villa days if his side do not record a victory against Chelsea or Swansea. Aston Villa have struggled heavily in the Premier League since they finished six points behind 4th place in the 2009/10 season, with the departure of key players such as James Milner, Ashley Young, Gareth Barry, and the rapid decline of Darren Bent posing very detrimental to the clubs fortunes.

Rodgers is seen as somewhat of a visionary by some, with his philosophy of playing possession football, pressing high up the pitch and promoting players from the youth academy being admired by football purists. This could be exactly what Villa need after a succession of less than inspiring managerial appointments such as Paul Lambert and Alex McLeish (remember him?). Rodgers could bring some form of structure and vision to to the Midlands club, and awaken this historic club from its slumber.
