Rodgers in no rush to discuss new Liverpool contract

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is in no rush to enter new contract talks.

Rodgers revealed the club have an option to extend his three-year deal by one more season, but he will earn fresh terms should the rate of improvement be maintained.

Asked what conversations there have been on his future, Rodgers replied: "Nothing whatsoever. I have, after this year, one more year to go. I have always said when I came I am very happy here and we're just over halfway through that contract and it is not something that comes into my thinking.

"If I never get offered one I would give my life to the last day of that contract. In the meantime, until anyone says otherwise or wants to reward the staff or myself for our work, then we keep working as normal and see where it takes us.

"The option is for the club for the fourth year, but in all fairness there is a point next year where the club has to let me know whether they want to keep me on or not.

"I have regular contact with the owners and it is never mentioned. I talk more about players. My ambition is more for the club so I want the players tied up so we can keep the best players here and get players in.

"The club knows my feelings in that I love it here and I've started out on something I would want to hopefully - if I can progress and be good and everyone is happy - stay here and continue. If it's not to be for the owners and they want a different direction at the end of it, I will have done my best."
