Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admitted his job is on the line after the biggest humilation of his career.
The Liverpool manager took full responsibility for a 6-1 thrashing by Stoke – the largest margin of defeat since Charlton beat them 6-0 in 1953.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, he said: “Absolutely. I have always said if the owners want me to go, I go – it is as simple as that, and I totally understand that.
“To start with it is an apology. All the supporters connected with Liverpool today will be embarrassed by that and deserve an apology. It was awful in the first half, absolutely awful.
“That is the worst I’ve ever had, absolutely. I have never conceded that many goals in a game.”
