Brendan Rodgers has credited himself with playing a key role in Liverpool ending their 30 year hunt for a top division title. The Leicester boss came close to ending the drought during his own time at Anfield.
“I’m delighted for the club,” the Irishman told Soccer on Sunday. “To see my work pay dividends is very gratifying. People talk about putting a statue of me beside Shankly, and maybe a statue of Jürgen at Melwood. Now’s not the time to be designing statues, to be fair. All that can wait until next week.”
“I’m proud of Jürgen,” said Rodgers. “It takes a big man to come in, change nothing, and just continue the excellent work of the previous manager. Credit to him.”
“Does anyone have Hendo’s number?” added Rodgers. “The one I have seems to be ringing through.”
