Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has opened up on his Liverpool by sacking by revealing that he wasn’t aware of the decision by the club bosses.
Rodgers arrived at Liverpool in 2012 from Swansea City but was sacked three years later and according to the North Irishman in an interview with The Beautiful Game Podcast, the decision to sack him was made earlier.
“There were a few stories but I didn’t know a thing. Clearly the decision was (already) made but I wasn’t aware of it.
“The first I spoke to the ownership was with Mike Gordon on the drive back home after the game. When I arrived at the training ground, I got in the car and I was driving home and I got the call from Mike. That was the first time I knew.
“I thanked them for it, for the experience, I knew where they were coming from and we parted on good terms. We both moved on,” he said.
The decision to sack Rodgers was announced after Liverpool drew 1-1 with bitter rivals, Everton, at Goodison Park in 2015.
From Liverpool, Rodgers came back into management with Celtic before ditching the Scottish champions for his current station at Leicester.
