Rodgers was also asked what he felt about other managers being linked with a job that he now occupies.
Rodgers offered a reminder about what he achieved in leading Liverpool back into the Champions League and to the brink of the title when he had “world class players” at his disposal in 2013-14.
The Merseyside manager has been under fire after seeing his side stumble out of the blocks this campaign, only to see the heat increase after they needed penalties to sneak past tiny Carlisle United in their Capital One Cup tie on Wednesday.
This has led to speculation linking former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti and ex- Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp with Rodgers’ job.
Carlisle, the lowest-ranked team in the competition, took Liverpool to penalties at Anfield after the game finished 1-1 following extra-time, Derek Asamoah having cancelled out Danny Ings’ 23rd-minute opener.
“Hopefully that will see me here for a longer period”.
“Because this is an incredible football club and all I want to do is see it succeed”.
“What I’ll always do is give my best to the club and if they decide they need to change, I’ll totally respect that”.
Rodgers is under intense scrutiny after four league games without a win.
“I have regular contact with the owners and relationship has always been strong”. I walked in here as a 38 year old manager and as I sit here I am much better manager, but I understand I must get results.
“Maybe this is one of those little things that can just pull us together as we look forward to the weekend (home game against Aston Villa on Saturday)”. “It’s still very early on”.
A year ago Rodgers told Spanish sports daily Marca that he hoped to be manager of Liverpool for 20 years. Gary McAllister calmed fears over serious injuries after the game but Rodgers has now claimed that the Brazilian may have cracked a bone in his back while Lovren will be on the sidelines for a few weeks with ankle ligament damage. “At a club of this stature, that’s always there”.
“I’ve an inherent belief in what I do”.
The Northern Irishman’s future at the club has been in jeopardy following the side’s disappointing start to the season, with a couple of dodgy displays over the past six matches in the Premier League. But to work with the players I’ve worked with here has been fantastic.
