Brendan Rodgers to stay as Liverpool manager

Brendan Rodgers is to stay as Liverpool manager following a meeting with the club's co-owner Tom Werner.

Werner met the 42-year-old Reds boss in the city on Tuesday as part of his end-of-season review.

Liverpool finished sixth in the Premier League last season and missed out on a place in the Champions League.

But Northern Irishman Rodgers and Werner agreed on a "comprehensive plan" aimed at ensuring performances improve next season.

Rodgers was appointed as Liverpool manager on 1 June, 2012, but admitted after the 6-1 defeat at Stoke on the final day of the season that his future was in doubt.

Speaking after that match Rodgers said: "I've always said if the owners want me to go, then I go."

Rodgers came close to a first title win in 24 years in 2014 but endured a disappointing 2014-15 season, with Liverpool failing to progress from the group stage of the Champions League.
