Brendan Rodgers should be the next England manager, insists Steven Gerrard

first_img Brendan Rodgers and Steven Gerrard Steven Gerrard believes Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers would be the ideal successor to Roy Hodgson as England boss.The former Reds captain says Rodgers’ style of play and man-management skills would be suited to international football and thinks Rodgers could replace Hogdson when his current deal runs out after Euro 2016. “Obviously when Roy’s had his time… Brendan Rodgers,” Gerrard told the Daily Mail.“The way he plays would suit England. He would improve the possession football you need at international level. His man management is brilliant. At tournaments, in the heat, it is absolute torture and we need to keep the ball better.“If you want someone who would get the team playing and the players would enjoy working with, it would be Brendan.“Look, I can’t find any mistakes with Roy. He’s always been very good to me and is the right man to be the England manager now. I hope he has a very good European Championship and stays as long as possible but will be judged on what happens in the finals — he knows that himself.“If it doesn’t go well I’m sure there will be changes, maybe then or whenever Roy’s time’s over Brendan can be in the mix — but who am I?” 1last_img
