BR - Brendan Rodgers has been handed two major assignments as manager of Liverpool Football Club:
Improve attacking play
Achieve better results in the league
The Fenway Sports Group (FSG) will likely evaluate their new chief almost exclusively based on these criteria.
The decision to release Rodgers' predecessor further underscores this point. Impressive displays across both domestic tournaments were not enough to save Kenny Dalglish's job. The club's new boss thus takes over knowing that similar failings could yield a similar verdict if form fails to improve.
