Brendan Rodgers almost guided Liverpool to the Premier League title in 2013/14

Brendan Rodgers is a manager who almost miraculously guided Liverpool to the Premier League title. The Ulsterman is considered to be one of the brightest young managers in the game.

Rodgers believes in his teams keeping possession of the ball and playing a flowing passing game with the ball always moving; defensively, he likes his team to put a lot of pressure on the opposing team. Steven Gerrard also praised Brendan Rodgers as the best man-manager he had ever seen. 

Rodgers has managed 4 clubs – Watford, Reading, Swansea and Liverpool with his time at Swansea and Liverpool being most famous. However, Rodgers was ultimately sacked at Liverpool for his failings in the transfer market.

The Ulsterman spent € 411.58 million bringing in 51 players in the last decade. However, his inability to win a single major trophy led to him being replaced by Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
