first_imgBrendan Rodgers insists he is not worried about losing his job as Liverpool manager.The Northern Irishman has seen his future at the club called into question in recent weeks after a stuttering start to the season.Defeat to Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday would make his position even more unstable, but Rodgers maintains he is not feeling the heat ahead of the trip to Goodison Park.“I am not looking for any reassurances (from owners Fenway Sports Group),” he said.“It is not something I am seeking or am worried about. I will always work with the players and the situation I am in.”He added: “I’ve always been clear as the manager, you will always have critics and of course if you are not winning games convincingly sometimes those critics can increase.“I respect and understand that (booing) – they all want to win as much as we want to win and there was probably a bit of frustration.“That is something you have to take on the chin as a coach and as players.“But I also know there is a great level of support out there. It is about perspective; there is a lot of focus on these players who I think are dealing with it very well.“Perspective keeps us calms and hopefully allows us to progress.”Liverpool are a point behind Everton heading into this weekend’s meeting, and have won just once in five Premier League games.But Rodgers is confident he will turn their fortunes around and turn them into top four challengers, adding: “It is still very early on in the season and we are making progress as we go along and we have some outstanding players to come back into the reckoning.“When we get those back we know we have a squad to challenge.“(Everton) are a point ahead of us and have had a good start and we’ve had a disaster! We are only a couple of points from where we want to be in the top four.” Brendan Rodgers 1last_img
