Rodgers happy to wait for Liverpool contract talks

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is happy to wait until the summer for new contract talks.

Rodgers has 15 months left on his current deal - although the club has the option to extend his stay by another year.

He said: "I haven't even talked about it to be honest. I don't think it's something the club should look at until the end of the season.

"I'm not crying for anything. I'm really happy here. It's an incredible club and if the title goes down to the last day then that's where it's at.

"I love being the manager here. I was asked about the contract in the summer but my only focus was trying to get the best players here and to keep Luis Suarez.

"If, come the end of the season, we have done a good job and the owners are happy with how it has gone, we will sit and talk.

"I don't have an agent out there pumping stories about me not being happy.

"Let's just get to the end of the season and take it from there."
