Mourinho eyeing up move for Coleman

Brendan Rodgers knows his position as Liverpool boss could start to come under scrutiny if their current poor form continues.

The Reds lost a fourth consecutive game in all competitions after going down 3-1 to Crystal Palace yesterday and Rodgers' side are now 18 points behind league leaders Chelsea. As their Champions League campaign hinges on Wednesday's clash with Ludogorets, Rodgers knows he is under pressure.

"I'm not arrogant enough to think that I will be in a job through anything," Rodgers (above) said.

"Any manager will tell you, that you have to win games and you have to get results, especially after how we've been developing as a football club.

"But I have a great communication line with the owners. We've been honest enough with each other, but ultimately you have to get results. You have to perform.

"There's no doubt as a manager you have to get results. That will support the confidence to the owners, and you take it from there.

"I will only ever do my best. The best has seen us develop well. Now I need to fight even harder and take the responsibility because as manager full responsibility comes down to me. Any pressure comes on to me."
