Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger feels that Northern Irish coach Brendan Rodgers will find a job again, after the Liverpool manager was sacked last night following a 1-1 draw in the Premier League against Everton in a Merseyside derby.

While it was mooted from many days that Rodgers' future at Anfield is under heavy doubts after the Reds acquired 14 points from eight games in the league this season, the big salvo came yesterday from Fenway Sports Group, the American owners of the club.

The investment firm mentioned in their statement that the decision of terminating the contract of Rodgers "provides us with the best opportunity for success on the pitch."

The 42-year-old Northern Irishman joined the Anfield side in 2012 from Swansea, but he has been unable to break the trophy drought Liverpool have faced for years.

Wenger, though, believes that Rodgers was purely "unlucky" not to win the Premier League. "I'm always sad when that happens as I think he is a quality manager. Unfortunately the pressure is always bigger on the managers," the Frenchman, fresh after his team's big 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, said.

"He [Rodgers] was very unlucky to not win the Premier League. He was closest certainly to winning the Premier League of all the managers that have been working for the club, but that is the way it goes now and I wish him good luck. I'm sure he will find a job again."

Meanwhile, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has also questioned the decision of the owners, as he mentions that the Reds are steadily losing their status as a heavyweight club.

"Rodgers can't argue in some ways," Carragher told Sky Sports. "He's been there three years, he hasn't won a trophy and they've played Champions League football once. That's not good enough for Liverpool.

"Liverpool are becoming Tottenham. They think they are a big club but the real big clubs aren't concerned about what they do. What are these owners going to do to get the club back to where it needs to be?," the former defensive rock added.

Even Arsenal legend Thierry Henry said the same, and blamed the Liverpool owners for their ridiculous stance.

"It seems to me that they [the owners] really don't like football, they are kind of using the Liverpool brand," Henry said.

"I have massive respect for Liverpool, the club is a brilliant club, but I go back to what Jamie [Carragher] said – it's not a big team any more.

"Those owners right now are using the Liverpool and I don't think it's on for the fans."

The attention now shifts to former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp and former Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti, as the potential replacements for Rodgers as the next Liverpool manager.
