Liverpool owners FSG’s decision to sack Brendan Rodgers has been proved right four years on. The former Reds boss was fired on this day in 2015 after a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby.
A move considered bold by some has turned out to be the best decision the American owners have made during their time at Anfield.
The exit of Rodgers paved the way for Liverpool to begin a revolution under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.
Three European finals, and one Champions League trophy later, Liverpool fans are hailing the German coach as one of the club’s all-time greats.
Since joining the Reds in 2015, Klopp has slowly created one of the best teams in world football.
His side is relentless in attack and solid in defence. The Reds have the skill to blow teams away and the grit to grind out wins when it really matters.
In the four years since the sacking of Rodgers, Liverpool have become one of the biggest and best teams in Europe. So much so that kit manufacturers Nike and New Balance are literally fighting over who gets to pay us millions to create the Liverpool strip next season.
The long trophy drought is over and now Liverpool are set to challenge for each and every honour available this season.
FSG have done some great things at Anfield but sacking Rodgers to hire Klopp is definitely the best decision they have ever made.
