BRENDAN Rodgers has confirmed that being fired was something he had planned all along.
After poor results which saw Liverpool adopt a 1-2-0-2-2-1-1-1 formation in a bid to score using neuro-linguistic programming techniques, the club decided to find someone ‘less sophisticated’.
Rodgers said: “I will now sit on my sofa in my pants for the next three months, eating Wotsits and staring at my self-portrait. This will generate an upturn in results with a draw away at Norwich in January.
“In 2018, when I’m doing after dinner speeches in Dubai, Liverpool will win the League Cup as a result. It’s all in my dossier.”
In a statement, the club thanked Rodgers for ‘whatever the hell it was he had been doing for the past three and a half years’.
It is understood Rodgers offered to write the statement himself, claiming to be ‘one of the world’s top five sacking statement writers’.
