Liverpool fans go nuts as they realise new Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers can finally win them the league by beating Man City
Rodgers, 46, infamously missed out on the 2013-14 Premier League title with the Reds as they threw away a massive lead at the top the table to hand the crown to Manchester City.
A supremely talented team including Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Steven Gerrard came agonisingly close to breaking their Prem duck.
However, shock results against Crystal Palace – throwing away a 3-0 lead to draw 3-3 – and a devastating 2-0 loss to Chelsea after Steven Gerrard's slip saw the title disappear.
But now, Rodgers can finally help the Reds lift the Premier League trophy – as his new Leicester side take on Man City on the penultimate weekend of the season.
Former Liverpool chiefs Rafa Benitez and Roy Hodgson have already played their part this season.
Newcastle stunned City 2-1 after Sergio Aguero's first-minute strike in January – while Crystal Palace won a 3-2 thriller over Pep Guardiola and Co in December.
Now, Kop followers are hoping soon-to-be Leicester boss Rodgers can finally make up for the 2013-14 disappointment at the Foxes.
One fan wrote: "Rodgers could finally write himself into Liverpool folklore in the way he never could."
Another said: "Rafa and Rodgers doing their bit to help Liverpool win the league on the penultimate weekend…"
A third added: "Brendan Rodgers to win Liverpool the league… If Klopp can’t main man Brendao will."
One claimed: "On 4th May, Man City play Leicester and Brendan Rodgers will finally get that chance to win the league for Liverpool #LFC Come on Brendan!"
With 11 games to go in the 2018-19 season, Liverpool sit just one point above Man City at the top of the Premier League.
Should they still be neck-and-neck come May 4, Reds fans will be backing Rodgers as if he was still one of their own.
